What is Seating?

Seating is a classroom management tool for teachers that is part of the award-winning Satchel One app lineup. Intuitive seating plans put teachers in control of the classroom, with clear information on students’ inclusion data, Behaviour points and attainment data - helping them to create effective seating arrangements.

Seating that serves students

A well thought out seating plan helps to get the most out of students and allows them to reach their full potential. With Seating, teachers have access to all the data and information they need to create a productive and safe learning environment.

  • View student inclusion data on seating plans
  • Use Behaviour points as a seating indicator
  • Use Assessment Data to help inform plans
  • See individual student Welfare Notes from seating plans
Seating has been really helpful, and has enabled teachers to think strategically about how they should be directing their questioning in a way that challenges all, especially in mixed ability groupings.

Time-saving features for teachers

Seating makes creating seating plans quicker and easier than ever before. With time-saving, auto-fill features and the ability to save and share past plans, teachers’ time is protected, giving them more freedom to teach.

  • Use auto-fill to populate plans in seconds
  • Reuse seating plans for faster classroom set up
  • Share plans amongst other teachers
  • Print seating plans for supply teachers
The system enables staff to access seating plans for all classes and assists with the smooth running of the school. It’s a fantastic addition to Show My Homework, running from the same cloud platform and l would highly recommend it.

Safer classrooms

Seating uses student data to help teachers create a safe learning environment. Whether that means keeping students safe from infection or preserving their mental and physical safety outside of lessons with information on personal details.

  • Take precautions with socially distanced seating plans
  • Follow up on infections with easy contact tracing with the Seating Report
  • Use Welfare Notes to communicate wellbeing concerns among colleagues
The Seating app helps track pupil contact and clear seating plans mean that if a child is off sick the school will know exactly which pupils have been sitting in proximity.

Inspection-ready software

Ofsted inspectors want to see evidence that teachers are using student data to create spaces that are optimised for learning. This includes using Behaviour and assessment data to build an environment conducive to learning.

  • Inspectors will see data-rich seating software as a good thing
  • Use seating plans to show Ofsted that you consider the ability and needs of students when deciding where they sit
  • Print plans as easy-to-digest PDFs to share with inspectors
