Class Charts, the UK’s leading seating plan and behaviour management software solution, is helping teachers to quickly create data-rich seating plans that are Ofsted-ready. Schools can spend a great deal of time creating their class seating plans, but creators Edukey believe that this need not be the time consuming chore it once was. Class Charts is proven software that links seamlessly with SIMS, creating instant seating plans for each class.

With Class Charts, schools can create classroom seating plans for all of their classes in around 30 minutes, connecting to the data in SIMS, Integris and CMIS. The resource saves teachers a huge amount of workload and makes sure they are ready for Ofsted lesson observations. It helps secondary school teachers keep track of pupils' current and target grades, and gives instant access to key information so that they are always fully informed and can differentiate effectively in lessons.

“The support of Class Charts has really been appreciated,” said Steve Hackshaw of Ralph Thoresby School in Leeds. “Ofsted have been and gone. We have had an incredibly tough few days, and although I'm not allowed to let you know of the outcome, I tell you that we are pleased.”

“All inspectors were given a printed Class Charts seating plan as they came in, which enabled them to do their job effectively, and helped our staff to show how they manage and track all the students in each class.”

However, there is much more to Class Charts than just seating plans, with the option to add in behaviour management, making it the ideal tool for recording and tracking pupil behaviour throughout the school. Teachers looking to explore this resource are encouraged to take a free trial of the software.
