The year 2023 has been a remarkable journey for Juniper Education, as six pioneering featured schools across the UK achieved ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspection ratings by leveraging our tools and solutions. The theme ‘An Outstanding Year with Juniper’ resonates with the accomplishments of these schools, and as we head into the autumn term, 23/24, we are excited to share their success stories. Their achievements are a beacon for schools looking to enhance their educational outcomes.

Priestlands School’s embrace of Juniper’s advanced solutions resulted in a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating. By incorporating data-driven tools, the school’s personalised learning experiences closed achievement gaps and fostered a nurturing environment for teachers and students.
“Staff have regularly been analysing the data within Sisra Analytics to identify these vulnerable students. Within 3 or 4 clicks, a class teacher can view comprehensive progress data on all their high prior attaining boys enabling them to monitor their progress constantly.” – Tom, Deputy Headteacher
2. All Hallows Catholic High School, Ofsted ‘Outstanding’: An Outstanding Journey – Sisra Analytics

3. Our Lady of Grace Catholic Primary School. ‘Ofsted Outstanding’: Targeting Success with Precision – Juniper Assessment Tracker
Our Lady of Grace Catholic Primary School utilised Juniper’s Target Tracker to secure an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating. The platform provided an insightful overview of student performance, enabling the school to implement tailored interventions that elevated teaching standards and student outcomes.
“I think what we find really useful in Juniper Assessment Tracker is the reports and the fact that it’s able to take the data and help us construct our story for each pupil from that data rather than just having to look at the raw data ourselves.” – Gillian, Assessment Lead

“We’ve got 300 students coming into year seven next academic year. From the first time we enter data, we will be able to make comparisons to their peers in other Sisra schools through the SPI function. We don’t have to wait for a Progress 8 figure at the end of year 11 to find out how they are doing as part of the national picture.” – Nick, Headteacher
