Whether or not they know what they want their future to be, East’s platform supports students in identifying their future options, as well as the capabilities and character traits they will need to get there.
It allows students to define and work towards academic, extra-curricular and personal goals, and identify the enrichment activities which will help them get there. It puts them in control of their own school experience, giving them a voice to tell teachers how they want to be supported. And it helps monitor their progress against these plans, as well as their broader wellbeing, enjoyment of school activities and motivation to achieve.

Get to know your students better, in their own words and backed up by data
Instantly see who needs what help

Flag to your SLT when more support is needed
More impactful conversations
Through the platform, you can advertise and signpost students to the activities and resources which meet their development needs.
You will get direct feedback on what the students do and don't want, so you can tailor your enrichment and pastoral programmes to be as engaging and effective as possible.
And you will get a clear view on how impactful each activity is on your students’ achievements and wellbeing, allowing you to improve your offering year-on-year.
Know what is working
for the wider learning network
As our evidence base grows, we are able to build up a picture of student development within and across Academy chains and Local Authorities.
Even better, we are increasingly understanding what is driving those differences - from individual school programmes to changes in national funding and policies. This allows best practices to be identified, shared and continually improved, allowing us to keep on narrowing the outcomes gap.
