Kind Words

Early and Primary Essence Data Tracking is a delight to use.  After years of searching for an effective data system, this truly addresses the needs of the school to give teachers comprehensive tools to ensure every child meets their potential.

The Mobile App technology has allowed us to assess anytime, anywhere and share the top quality images of this learning instantaneously with parents. Early and Primary Essence is key to pupil progress at Brackenhill Primary and Nursery.
