Tracking pre-school progress in Cambridgeshire

Sentinel is providing an online system that will enhance the development of pre-school children across Cambridgeshire.

Commissioned by Cambridgeshire County Council, our secure data transfer solution will enable early years providers to assess children and exchange the progress data with the authority’s Early Years Service and schools.

Providing an effective means of evidencing progress and ensuring more children are ready for school, the system will enhance providers’ understanding and help them manage their service.

The objectives of the system include:

-       Providers will be able to evidence progress better and understand which children are making progress and which not, and in what areas of learning

-       Providers will be better equipped to measure the development and meet the needs of children in receipt of enhanced and targeted funding, such as funded two-year-olds and children in receipt of the Early Years Pupil Premium

-       Providers will have an additional independent source of evidence to support their self-evaluation which can be used in managing their service, reporting to parents and in conversations with Ofsted

-       Children’s centres will have access to aggregated and more detailed data on progress and outcomes, enabling more effective targeting of resources

Sentinel Director Graham McCusker said: “This is a perfect scenario to demonstrate what our solutions can do. On-line assessment forms will make data capture more efficient and will ensure higher data quality, while the data integration power of our Data Hub will be able to share this information in a controlled way to those council teams who need to be able to see timely aggregated information.”
