Here’s what school teachers, principals and deputy principals have to say
USE it!! I have been doing this process for years and Pluto has been a game changer. We are a big school. We have a lot of info to cross-check and 'get right' - Pluto has taken the stress away.
Pluto is an easy to use system. So much easier than our old method. No more paper placements of children and 263 post it notes on my office wall! Our whole management team has said how easy the system is and how smooth this year's class placements have been.
Pluto has saved me hours of work. It took teachers only 15-20 minutes to complete students’ cards. It will be an asset and time-saver for whoever does the classes for the next year. Thank you.
I wholeheartedly endorse this product. The process now takes a fraction of the time to complete. Pluto’s greatest strength is in reducing unintended errors and inconsistencies. This reduces stress on teachers and students as they set for the new school yearWatch the interview
Pluto is incredibly easy to use and makes the complicated, demanding and very important task of class placement, at the end of the busy term 4, so much easier.
Pluto takes the time and stress out of a difficult job. The time leaders and teachers put into class placements before Pluto can now be distributed elsewhere at this crazy time of year!Read More
Just thinking of the hours that we spent last year manually sorting this! Being able to see at a glance on the solutions all that info of differing groups. Amazing. Thanks guys.
It has been a great tool to use to manage 1000 students into their best class for the following year. We love being able to see multiple iterations and to be able to move individual students.
One of the things we liked is you can maintain the privacy around the students stories. It isn't shared in an open forum.Watch the interview
Pluto has saved hours of work! I would recommend this no matter the size of your school. It is flexible and so easy to flick from reading groups to maths to writing etc a resource worth every cent in my view.
Whether schools make up their classes through academic results, culturally, gender or year group, Pluto was able to quickly filter these groups with an even spread across the classes. We often get parent requests for class placements or for students to be kept with or away from other children. Pluto quickly filtered these students across the classes but maintained the even spread of academic abilities I had wanted.
Pluto has been magic. It's been great to see so clearly the different categories as we have tweaked classes.
As first time users we have really enjoyed the experience and how easy it has been.
In the past, we spent hours with sticky notes trying to make equal classes with a mix of behaviour, ability and gender. Now the teachers fill in their cards, the Senco puts in any special needs and we press the button. Thank you so much Pluto!!
I cannot speak highly enough of this site and service. The system allowed many options and composite classes were easily catered for as well. At Dawson, we highly recommend Pluto and we will certainly be using the service again.
We have absolutely loved using Pluto. It was so easy.
