Welcome to the Independent Schools Portal
The Independent Schools Portal exists to enable Schools to collaborate, share and take advantage of scaled purchasing opportunities using cloud technology tools - all for the direct benefit of pupils. All Portal services are FREE OF CHARGE to schools as the project is supported by commercial partners.
We are currently conducting a survey with our sister magazine innovatED on parental knowledge and attitudes to E-safety. The aggregated, analysed results will be shared in the magazine, with schools, organisations with responsibility for child safety and government agencies. Individual data will remain completely anonymous and we will not ask for your name or any contact details. If you are able to spare 5 minutes answering the questions, then this will be of benefit many to many thousands of parents and children during the next 12 months
Membership of the Independent Schools Portal is free for all schools, but the benefits are considerable.
In addition to the open areas which can be accessed and used by all education professionals, there are also additional benefits for schools through becoming a Portal member. These include tools to support private, cross-school collaborations and an ability to influence the development and future direction of the Portal. In addition, we frequently run free events at the request of members and collaborate with them on the latest cutting-edge action research projects.
Joining the Portal brings tangible benefits:
All it costs to join is the email addresses of your staff so that we can create their unique login details.
