Arbor’s Brand New ‘My Homepage’!

Reminder of our next Schools Data Forum next Tues 24th Nov, featuring Arbor and more! Agenda and bookings >

Arbor

From today until tomorrow (16/11/20 – 17/11/20), Arbor are rolling out My Homepage – a brand new, personalised Arbor homepage for teaching and pastoral staff. There’s also improvements to the main Arbor homepage for all staff roles!

What’s new for staff who look after teaching or pastoral groups:

  • My Students – We’ve added a brand new tab to your Homepage showing you a personalised view of progress for your students only. Drill down to see which students are driving overall trends, filter your stats by key groups, such as FSM Year 5 boys, or SEN EAL girls, or switch back to the Whole School tab to get an overview of your school.
  • To-do list – This brand new feature will show you any incomplete registers, unresolved behaviour incidents, incomplete assessment data collections and cover requests assigned to you, helping you tick them off between lessons.
  • Student Alerts – See medical and pastoral notes, detentions and birthdays for your students so you never miss the important things!

What we’ve improved for everyone:

  • Whole school notices – We’ve brought this up to the top of the homepage so no one misses an important announcement
  • Quick Actions and Shortcuts – We’ve expanded the Quick Actions menu to bring your most important actions like ‘Take attendance’, ‘Create event’ and ‘Send email’ front and centre. Shortcuts will take you directly to core Arbor modules such as Behaviour, Cover and Summative tracking.
  • Adjust your Dashboard – You’ll be able to select which whole school stats you want to see – Attendance, Behaviour or Attainment (or all three!).
