Performance management for education professionals
Design, Development, Scalability
Setting the standard for online performance management in schools.
BlueSky is an online platform that allows schools to track and manage staff performance in schools. It creates a framework that reduces the administrative burden and helps schools identify areas for improvement.
Repeat after me
Working closely with BlueSky (for over twelve years now) we have built and then continually evolved a product that has become a trusted tool for over 2,000 schools and 150,000 users.
At the beginning of Kyan’s relationship with BlueSky it was a startup business looking to solve a key problem in the education sector. Senior teaching staff are frequently tasked with producing reports that require the analysis of various data streams, which if completed manually with paperwork can be ponderous and inefficient.
The first of it’s kind
As the business has grown, so has the app. We’ve added new features, improved scalability and most recently refreshed the design. These additions have reflected government frameworks for teacher progression, as well providing opportunities for self assessment, objective setting, peer mentoring, as well identifying strengths and weaknesses and providing suggestions for how to fill gaps.
Helping teachers connect
As the platform has grown, so too has the sense of a BlueSky Community between users. The BlueSky platform also now caters for knowledge-sharing, discussion of best-practice and group learning. These refinements have allowed BlueSky to meet demand and stay ahead of the competition.
Schools using BlueSky have double the national average of ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted reports.Bluesky Education
There’s always room for optimisation and improvement. We’re currently trying to identify and understand user pain points and make the site work more efficiently for them.
