Harbour Primary and Nursery School is located in Newhaven, East Sussex, a busy port town on the south coast. Formerly two schools that joined together, Harbour Primary boasts a large cohort of 520 pupils across 17 classes. With a high proportion of disadvantaged children and pupils with SEN, assessment is a key factor in making sure every child achieves their full potential.
As early adopters of education technology, Harbour Primary equipped every member of the teaching staff with iPads back in 2013. So, when the opportunity to install the SIMS Teacher app came along, headteacher Christine Terrey leapt at the chance to streamline the school’s classroom management using mobile technology.
Christine Terrey, Headteacher, explains why the SIMS Teacher app is so valuable: “Now teachers can enter marks into SIMS instantly while working at the kitchen table, or on the train, and they love the freedom this gives them.”
