Since joining Juniper Education in late 2020, we have found ourselves in great company with our new colleagues who share the same vision for turning data in to information. The sector is now well-versed in data relating to students and the complexity that comes with it, but what about information we can use to ensure people are effective in their role? SISRA Observe was developed to eliminate the problem of administration heavy processes around professional development in schools, freeing up time and head space for people to focus on what matters.

What makes SISRA Observe different?

Ease of use – Usability is at the heart of every decision we make when it comes to SISRA Observe. We are proud of the great feedback from users and the difference we can make to people’s workload. Our support and customer success teams provide plenty of free training and materials via the help area to ensure everyone gets the most out of the cost and time investment involved in introducing something new.

“Staff workload has decreased significantly, particularly now we are using the system for staff appraisal documents. It has proven to be an extremely accessible and efficient system for all staff.”

Flexibility – We spoke to a school recently who were working with a school improvement partner and needed to streamline their current system of word documents and chaos of multiple shared areas. They were worried they were going to have to adapt their processes to us instead of the other way round so we built their own school template in minutes during the live the demonstration. The school have since joined the community and are already feeling the benefit of reduced workload and improved insights.

“We chose SISRA Observe because we liked that you could ‘build’ your own style of observation and learning walk templates from scratch using a range of qualitative and quantitative data, and analyse this in a quick and simple manner.”

Our roadmap is super exciting –We always dream big but since joining Juniper we have some game-changers in the pipeline. We’re working on features for multi-academy trusts and integrations to further reduce your workload. We’re discussing triangulating teaching and learning data with assessment data plus more features to facilitate sharing within and between schools. We absolutely love your feedback so if you want to be involved and help shape the future of SISRA Observe please get in touch.
