PAGS Partners with IRIS to Support Special Educational Needs and Neurodiversity in Schools

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with IRIS Software Group (IRIS), to streamline Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) management in schools across England and offer more comprehensive support to neurodiverse learners.

By integrating PAGS’ technology into IRIS’ Ed:gen and iSAMS platforms, schools will now be better equipped to manage the assessment,development and provision of support for SEND pupils.

Approximately one in seven people in the UK identify as neurodiverse – making it more important than ever to have the right infrastructure in place to support neurodiverse learners and help them thrive in educational environments. Schools using IRIS Ed:gen and iSAMS will now be able to automatically pull student data into the PAGS management system, which will significantly reduce the time it takes Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCOs) to create targeted, personalised plans and assessments for SEND pupils.

The partnership will also help streamline applications for high-needs government funding – a process which can typically take an average of 20 weeks for SENCOs and requires a high volume of evidence gathering. PAGS supports each stage of the application process and will automatically draw information from IRIS platforms to reduce time spent completing applications.

In her first comments, Feliciea Jibson, CEO and founder of PAGS said that "Joining forces with IRIS will empower us to deliver an unprecedented level of support and efficiency to schools. Our combined expertise will ensure that both administrative processes and student support are handled with outstanding proficiency, ultimately leading to better educational outcomes."

Sharing his perspective on this partnership, Simon Freeman, Managing Director for Education at IRIS commented that “Children with special educational needs and disabilities face significant challenges, including an estimated 25% of autistic children having a higher likelihood of struggling with school attendance and students with ADHD having GPAs that are, on average, lower than their neurotypical peers.”

“PAGS is a natural partner for IRIS; we both invest in solutions that foster inclusive education and prioritise pupil wellbeing. By working together, we can help educators reduce the time spent on manual data entry in spreadsheets and give them more data at their disposal to create impactful strategies to drive better outcomes for pupils. This support will be especially valuable for schools facing SEND budget constraints” Freeman added.
