Sleuth gives primary school leaders instant access to high quality information about behaviour for decision making and for monitoring and evaluating improvement strategies.
Using Sleuth, staff can quickly and efficiently record incidents, events and observations for an individual, a group or a whole class. All recording has real purpose, contributing to improved communication about behaviour, targeted support for pupils (and staff) and providing clear evidence of progress.
Everything you choose to record can be analysed, collated and combined in 1-click to instantly provide exactly the right information that leaders and teachers need for a huge range of tasks, including:
celebration assemblies, classroom management, transition, pupil support plans, parent meetings, phase team briefings, SEND assessment, leadership meetings, school improvement plans, governors’ meetings, safeguarding, policy reviews, Ofsted inspections, Pupil Premium spend and much, much more ..
Watch the video and read the case studies below for feedback from primary school leaders using Sleuth. We’re always happy to put you in touch with school leaders to find out more about their experiences of Sleuth and of working with us. If you would like a demonstration of Sleuth please contact us.
All Sleuth events can be used to profile behaviour and progress to reveal hotspots, patterns and trends. From whole school improvement strategies to interventions for individuals, Sleuth tracks the impact of every decision, providing evidence of what works in your school.
Sleuth provides 1-click access to high quality targeted information that all staff can use to deepen their understanding of behaviour and develop the skills and professional confidence to know how they can make a positive difference to pupils' progress and personal development.
Sleuth is an efficient way for staff to inform and be informed about events with objective and accurate information; well informed staff work collaboratively, proactively and effectively, with all conversations, meetings, decisions and interventions benefiting from the availability of high quality information.

These are just a few of the key features of Sleuth that primary schools in particular benefit from. For a more detailed list, click here.
Anyone can do it! 1-click is all it takes in Sleuth to analyse, collate and present a comprehensive range of reports to review a pupil, a group/class or the whole school, revealing patterns, trends and progress over any time period. The content and presentation of each report can be tailored for its intended purpose and audience.
Sleuth tracks the positive behaviours, personal skills and values that you want to encourage through consistent recognition. A suite of reports analyses progress so you can celebrate the success of individuals, peer groups and the whole school in class, with parents and in assemblies.
Personalised, school-branded letters, notices and certificates can be automatically generated and emailed to parent/carers from Sleuth or can be printed and awarded to pupils in class or assembly. Instant, stylish and free, use them to recognise pupil progress, engage parents and embed school values in the community.
Personal development can be tracked in Sleuth using a range of structured skills assessments e.g. for behaviour, communication, social skills. A SENDCo can compare assessments to get an accurate measure of progress. You can create your own assessment frameworks and/or use those developed and shared by others.
Sleuth is incredibly flexible and we give you the training, tools and support you need to configure it to your own pastoral policies and to provide the range of information that meets the different needs of your staff, now and as they evolve.
“The training and input from the Sleuth Advisory team opened our eyes to what is possible with Sleuth. It’s really important to make the most of that, it gives the direction and confidence to use it effectively.”
I’m now able to identify children that need support and can help them improve. We can look at alternative ways of dealing with different behaviour based on what Sleuth is telling us.
Using Sleuth, we’ve addressed a lot of the hotspots, we are now able to be more proactive and spot things earlier. We’ve become more analytical in our approach.
I wouldn’t have been able to have that conversation without the information in Sleuth, I would have been relying on word of mouth and piecing together conversations with different teachers
We chose to have a recognition system that supports our school vision explicity .. staff revisit that vision every lesson in Sleuth, it’s real, it’s live, in means something to them
