About the Webinar

Sleuth is in continual development and we regularly release new and improved features that have been requested by the schools using it. This webinar introduces a number of new features released over the last 12 months or so on a similar theme – giving you more features to control what information staff users can access.

After the webinar, if you need help to implement any of the features covered, give us a call and talk to the Advisory Team. Every Sleuth licence includes an allocation of free advisory and training time that your school can use to learn about the new features of Sleuth and to receive instruction on how to make best use of them with your own Sleuth system. Further advisory and/or training time can be purchased as required.

Tips for preparing for the Webinar

  • Review your school’s Sleuth usage (Menu -> System -> System Usage) for the last term to identify which staff currently have saved/shared searches/reports and whether they are actively used (the last 4 columns).
  • Review what you are recording in Sleuth and how you are using the data to reflect on and inform practice. Consider the different roles and responsibilities of staff – what information would be useful to each role? See our Monitoring and Evaluation Schedule framework for an example of how you can approach this.
