More Child-Time Project launched by @JuniperEd to help free up time in primary schools

Each day of the project will see school leaders receive a free set of resources direct to their inbox

The 16th November 2020 marks the start of 10 working days dedicated to freeing up time in primary schools so teachers and school leaders have more hours each day to focus on children.

Brought to you by the education team at Juniper Education, every day of the 10 Day More Child-Time Project will see school leaders receive a free set of resources direct to their inbox. Topics covered include how to reduce the marking burden for staff, simplify curriculum planning, improve wellbeing and help with supporting pupils through the pandemic.

The focus of the resources is on ease of use, with some tasks so straightforward that a head teacher can tackle them that same day. More in-depth suggestions are also provided for school leaders who wish to plan ahead for bigger changes over the course of this academic year.

Former school leader and Juniper Education’s chief marketing officer, Graham Cooper, believes the resources have come at the right time. “It is a critical time for primary schools. Many school leaders and their teams are overwhelmed with the amount of work they have to do. Adapting to the changing circumstances of the pandemic has meant there is little space to take a breather and reflect on whether a task actually needs to be completed, or if it can be done differently.

“Our education team, many of whom are former school leaders, have pulled together some easy wins to help head teachers cut out unnecessary tasks and simplify the necessary ones for staff.”

The launch of the 10 Day More Child-Time project coincides with Juniper Education’s announcement that it has rebranded its Pupil Asset management information system (MIS) as Juniper Horizons and plans to invest further in developing the product’s time saving features. Day four of the 10 Day More Child-Time Project focuses specifically on time saving tips for data management, as many teachers complain that this is one task that eats up time that could be better spent with their pupils.

The 10 Day More Child-Time Project is completely free to join and runs for 10 working days from 16th to 27th November 2020.  Each working day, school leaders receive an email with a selection of proven strategies for saving time.

Juniper Horizons MIS is used in nearly 500 primary schools and is the only management information system that has been designed with a classroom first, rather than school office first approach in mind.
