What are the benefits for member schools?

Member schools of the Peterborough Learning Partnership benefit from effective, high impact support to improve learning outcomes for pupils and the continued professional development of teachers. We achieve this through our Professional Development Programme, where our member schools receive high quality, high impact training at a highly reduced cost.

Each year we connect member schools with our partner organisations, where schools are able to benefit from discounts and free membership to their organisation.

For September 2018 ONLY, ClassHug are offering PLP schools 20% off all orders purchased (if more than 20 PLP schools sign up then the discount rises to 30% per school)  – there is limited availability and this offer expires on 30th September 2018.

“ClassHug simply helps you keep track of a group of children letting you focus on their learning, not doing endless headcounts. We reduce your stress, cut your workload when out of the classroom, help you reassure those parents that worry about you taking their children out and lets you give the children greater freedom to run, explore and be creative.

Should a child in your care wander more than a set distance away from you, or fail to keep up with the rest of the group, an alarm will sound on your phone or tablet which you can leave in your bag or pocket. By knowing that they’re beginning to wander outside your boundaries before they get too far you can quickly call them back and prevent them from becoming a lost child.

The children wear a small and unobtrusive wristband and the teacher / TA / Nursery leader has our secure app on their iPhone or iPad. The trackers work indoors or outdoors, above ground, underground and are splash proof.

You don’t need a phone signal or wifi to use it, just tap your phone on the tracker to connect and off you go.

Reviews and further information can be found on our website www.huggroup.co.uk

If you would like to get to know ClassHug a little more or perhaps you are ready to begin your journey with ClassHug please let me know when is suitable for you to have a chat, alternatively, you can reach Jade Estelle, Director of Sales and Marketing on 0203-637-8217″

£50 discount for PLP members on all workshops.

Having delivered in schools across the UK for the past 17 years, their presenters are able to captivate audiences of up to 150 students at a time ensuring ultimate value for money and an enriching, whole school experience.

Encouraging students to develop intrinsic motivation and resilience can sometimes seem like an uphill struggle, especially when they’ve “switched off” after finding that one method of learning doesn’t work for them.

What students don’t always realise though, is that we all learn differently and that there are so many different methods to try.

Positively MAD workshops focus on providing students with smart learning to learn strategies along with the drive, attitude and confidence to succeed.


Provision Tracker

Provision Tracker is a software designed by schools to help track interventions and provision. We have developed an easy to use, web based tool supporting schools in the graduated approach, evidencing SEN spend at the click of a button. Provision Tracker can be used to evidence any funding pots, from PPG to Sports Premium. Schools can evaluate the cost, time and impact of provisions. We give you a range of reports from the impact of one provision to comparing provisions against each other. Pupil Profiles allow you to see an overview of a pupil, total cost spent to date, a planned spend and a breakdown of all the interventions that pupil has received. Multiple members of staff can have access with set permission levels allowing all members of staff to be involved in tracking the provisions and adding notes and evidence.

Schools attending the information session, November 1st  2018 at Norwood Primary School, Peterborough, will receive a 10% discount if purchased within the month of November. Provision Tracker are also happy to offer a further 5% discount to any PLP member schools purchasing PT, regardless of timescale.
