The A Star System

Our new, innovative software makes dealing with pupil attendance easier, as it offers a comprehensive solution to attendance monitoring, tracking, intervention and reporting. It will manage every aspect of pupils attendance, without the need to produce endless reports.

Our unique software program extracts the attendance information you have already recorded in your management information system. Our software will transform the way in which education institutions, monitor, scrutinise, report and deal with pupil attendance through more targeted support. It will reduce the administrative burden and it will enable attendance and administration staff to focus on supporting pupils with attendance issues as it eliminates the time spent on retrieving, examining and compiling data to manage and challenge pupil non-attendance.  All of this is achieved through a user-friendly dashboard within our website.

What does The A Star System do?

Online Database for Whole School Attendance

With one click, whole school pupil attendance data is evaluated, enabling real-time data analysis and managing the next steps in facilitating improvements to individual pupil and whole school attendance. The database will direct the next course of action to be taken if a pupil’s attendance is not improving at a consistent rate.

Letters and Action Plans

Where there is insufficient progress with attendance for an individual pupil, sequential letters are generated from The A Star System, advancing from an initial concern letter to formal monitoring periods and subsequent action plans.

Home Visits

The A Star System will automatically and periodically coordinate timely attendance home visits for school staff to carry out. Following a home visit, the outcome is recorded electronically in real time.

Welfare Visits

The A Star System is designed to allow the welfare and safeguarding of students to be at the forefront of school’s thoughts. The A Star System believes in the welfare of children by supporting and empowering schools. Welfare home visits are generated by the system to empower schools with assurance of a pupil’s safety and well-being.
