Abbey Manor College, London (June, 2020)

 

Deborah Tucker, Curriculum Manager

SAM Learning has been great for our students at Abbey Manor College. We’ve found it easy to access with a multitude of subjects to choose from. Teachers are able to set work but independent study is encouraged via the opportunity for students to choose topics and set their own pace. (more…)

Louise Barnes, Deputy Head

We use SAM Learning within our school (we are actually a pupil referral unit) and for our students who have medical tuition and have been doing so for about 2 years. We investigated quite a few platforms before choosing SAM Learning.

Kate Bayman, Director of Curriculum Support (EPHS) and Enrichment

We have used SAM Learning in a range of ways at Eden Park High School. We have an extended day where students complete independent learning on site. SAM Learning is often used in these sessions as many tasks self-mark so students get immediate feedback and direction. More recently, we have used SAM Learning in our Literacy Intervention classes, where we teach in small groups exclusively using SAM Learning.

Assistant Vice Principal, Best Teaching

SAM Learning is an effective learning tool. We’ve increased usage from 2021 hours in 2014-15 to 13,558 hours in 2018-19 – our progress score has increased from -0.54 to -0.05 at the same time.

We used SAM Learning to track students at different assessment points and identify those under performing. The students are then placed into an intervention group and extra tasks are set for them. Every 6 weeks we then host pizza parties to celebrate the completion of the interventions.
