Recent events have caused schools around the world to find changes in the way they work.


For many Frog schools, moving to a virtual school model of operation is nothing new. Frog works with schools around the world and our community has encountered closure through everything from natural disasters, to severe weather patterns and even social upheaval.

Business continuity planning means not just finding new ways to facilitate learning but finding ways to keep the whole school running. Here we are sharing some of the ways in which schools use Frog to carry on with business when the world closes down...

Identifying students in need of support
Jun 8, 2020, 6:45 AM

Whilst managing remote learning, many schools are finding it a real challenge to identify those pupils not logging-in regularly to access work and assignments.

Assignment Open Report

The FrogCode Assignment Open Report widget really helped the Kennet School solve this issue. This is what the school had to say:

“The Assignment Open Report identifies which pupils have unopened assignments within a specified date range. The report provides us a clear list of what the unopened assignments are and also which teachers they were set by.

Primarily, the school’s pastoral team use this tool to take a top-level view of all pupils, they can easily identify which ones are not engaging with remote learning content and put interventions in place to engage with them.

Additionally, this widget also assists the school in identifying those pupils in need of support such as, well-being, workload or access to technology.”
