Badges & Progress

We are experiencing issues with an upgrade to the system that we use to record badge progress hence the Home Portals have not been updated in most cases. We are working with the supplier on this and hope to have this resolved shortly. In the mean time teachers have been asked to assess children as normal and issue badge slips so that the children can still be awarded badges (the slips must be handed into reception. Badges will not be issued without a slip). As soon as the Home Portal is back in action, progress will be updated.

The Home Portal can be accessedhere
