Connect with parents — Building a strong home-school partnership is invaluable, but it can be tricky. Pobble allows parents to connect with their child’s learning journey, giving them a unique opportunity to see and support their child’s writing. This can be a valuable tool for NQTs to engage with parents right from the beginning of their teaching journey.

Create an effective routine — Creating a routine will help you manage the writing process every step of the way. Not only does publishing your pupil’s work give them an authentic purpose, it simply makes writing ridiculously exciting! There’ll be a buzz about writing from the start of the school year and your class will consistently try their hardest in the hope of becoming a published author.

Build an evidence bank — Over time the writing published in your class account can be used as an online evidence bank. A great way to keep track of (and demonstrate) the progress your class is making.

Easy moderation — Your class’s evidence bank of work can be used for moderation. Pobble’s moderation feature allows writing to be easily annotated and checked against relevant criteria. Assessment files can also be shared with senior staff to allow NQTs to work alongside them and moderate effectively.
