   AWARDS 2018

Our Award Winning System

In 2018 against strong competition, EExAT was awarded a highly commended in the prestigious Bett awards for Education IT Systems.

What does EExAT do?

EExAT provides a Birth to end of EYFS summative assessment developmental framework with up to four assessment points per year. It gives focus to children’s Well-being and Involvement and uses a series of assessment statements based on the:

  • EYFS Characteristics of Effective Learning.
  • EYFS Prime Areas of Learning.
  • EYFS Specific Areas of Learning.

In the developmental framework you record your summative judgements which generate an age-related and cohort-related outcome score. Information from each child’s individual developmental framework populates the Reports Section enabling you to produce reports to show attainment and progress at pupil, class and cohort level as well as filter for different criteria.  The EExAT assessment milestones are developmental from Birth – 5+ years.  They are precise statements from which to assess each child’s attainment. To support the accuracy of this judgement, the assessment milestones are supported by over 400 exemplification film clips, including children with SEND. This builds practitioner knowledge and secures more consistent judgements across the team.

The Plan to Suit
Your School

From Teachers
& Leaders

“I absolutely love EExAT and the fact that everything is in one place. Given that the tracker gives me clear, accurate and age-related information, I am able to easily upload observations, attach statements and build up evidence as I need to – and the parents love the Learning Journals.”
Rita Scott

Early Years Leader, St Marys Endowed. Norwich

“We’ve decided to move everyone to EExAT so that all of our schools will be assessing against the same, informed criteria enabling us to present progress and attainment data in a uniform way. We also value that EExAT gives us the ability to moderate and work collaboratively from afar, which is crucial as time-efficiency and not adding to workload are priorities for our trust.”
Gareth Letton

Executive Assistant Principal, The DALP Trust, Nottighamshire

“In our LA all the Primary Schools use EExAT and we are finding that teachers feel much more confident with their assessments. We utilise the huge bank of EExAT film clips within our training and these have been invaluable in supporting teachers to make more accurate judgements. Our EExAT journey is truly rewarding – long may it continue!”
Julie McAllister

Jersey LA Advisor of 18 Primary Schools

“EExAT is working really well for us. This term we launched the Parent App and the response has been unbelievable, the most parental engagement across all 215 EY families we have ever had!”
