PAM originates from within a school environment. It was born through the need for a single,
centrally stored system rather than having to purchase many different software solutions.
The observation feature was concieved with the intention of removing one or two formal observations a
year, and introducing a more 'open-door policy' whereby management can easily walk in any
lesson, at any time, on any day, to carry out an observation. The transparency created through
this method of
observations allows staff members to have a uniform understanding of what level of teaching is
required within your school.
Data software used prior to PAM was very complicated to read and was difficult to access
for a classroom teacher. Other software
solutions tend to gear their data towards management and SLT. PAM allows all members of
staff to analyse and view school and classroom
With paper waste becoming an ever growing issue, PAM has saved schools thousands of pounds a
year on paper as everything required for Performance Management,
Data, Self-Evaluation, Parent Communication, Seating Plans etc. is all electronically stored within one system.
