Do your office staff face the challange of admitting new arrivals who are new to English?
School Inspectors are always addressing what evidence you can demonstrate regarding Home Assessment and effective communication with parents.
Our Pupils Admission App in dual language enables parents and teachers to understand each other effectively with important data about the child, home, family etc
The App can be used on iPads, Androids, computers, laptops, etc.
This is a dual language questionnaire, where the questions are are also with audio in the home language. There are nested questions depending on answers and filtered by age group. After completing the questionnaire, a dual language report can be printed out or emailed to various people at any time. You can also include a photo of the child and other photos - perhaps of the parents. Any class teacher would find this level of personalisation very useful.
The app covers over 70 questions (in audio and text for the different languages). As the parent listens in their home language and answers a question, their answers are mirrored in English. At the end of the question, all answers are collated in as a .pdf document. Copies can be kept for administrators, for class teachers and TA's. Many of the children do not stay long at one school and therefore the hard copies of pdf can be handed on to the administrators of the next school.
We do not use Google translate. In fact, you can't for many of the languages EAL parents and children speak. Only human translators and human voices are used. The app costs £200 site license for all 18 languages. Or, if you do not need all languages, then you can buy a language at a time - cost is £20 per language per year site license. Site license means that the school or nursery can give the app to all admin staff or teachers. This enables a teacher to update records of any pupil any time and take out as many copies as they liked. (To compare, if you had to translate and narrate the contents in one language, this would be far over £200)
The languages are English with Arabic, Bengali, Bulgarian, Cantonese, Czech, French, Hungarian, Kurdish, Lithuanian, Panjabi, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Slovakian, Tamil.
To order with your prefences, please send details in your official order form. We will send you the App as a site licence so all relevant staff could access it.
Since all reports can be emailed, when a pupil transfers to another class or school, the information can easily be transferred with them.
