“As soon as we saw ReallySchool, we thought it looked remarkably uncomplicated. For some of us, new technology takes a while to get to grips with, but the ReallySchool app is clear and uncluttered – it’s obvious where you need to click. Once we tried the app ourselves, we realised that it is, in fact, very easy to use – and it’s quick, too!”

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does ReallySchool cost?
ReallySchool has an annual fee that varies depending on the number of pupils you have. The lowest priced subscription is £75 for 30 pupils. You can find our pricing list here.
What devices can I use to access ReallySchool?
The app can be used on any Android/Apple tablet or mobile device. The browser can be accessed through any Windows and Mac device. Up-to-date versions of either Chrome, Edge, Safari, Opera, or Firefox are required.
How do I edit an observation?
When looking at an observation in draft mode, click on the three dots in the top right-hand corner. This will give you some options including ‘Edit.’ Also, from your PC, you can edit or add extra notes to an observation taken earlier on a tablet.
What do parents see?
Parents can see their child’s observations including photos, videos, audio files and student badges through our dedicated iOS or Android app. Parents can also download their child’s individual journal or report.
How do you add new students?
To add students, you need to be an administrator. An administrator can manually add students by clicking on the ‘Plus’ button on the student tab. To add student information more quickly, you can import a CSV file from your school’s MIS system. For import guidance, head here.
Who do I contact if I need support?
Can you delete an observation after it has been posted?
In draft mode, you have the option to delete observations. However, it isn’t possible to delete a completed observation, because this would change the assessments that have been saved into the system, which would alter class data. Instead, you can edit an observation after it has been posted.
Where can I get the app?
Where do I buy it?
You can register your school online through “try now” or use our get in touch form to find out more information about buying ReallySchool.
What if I change my mind?
We offer a free month’s trial so that you have time to change your mind if ReallySchool isn’t right for you.
What is the difference between draft, saved and posted as a status?
A draft post is an uncompleted post that you can edit, delete or remove at any time. If a post is saved, this means you can edit the observation, but it cannot be removed. An observation won’t be shared with parents until it is posted. If the observation is posted, that means it can be seen by staff and parents and the assessment data is added to relevant reports and journals. The observation cannot be removed but may be edited.
Can I have a teacher or senior leader see observations and data for more than one class?
Yes, an admin can see all classes and students and can add staff to any number of classes allowing them to see and add observations to multiple classes as desired.
What assessment frameworks are included in ReallySchool?

These frameworks include The National Curriculum for England, Development Matters (EYFS), The National Curriculum for Wales, The Digital Competence Framework, The Scottish Curriculum for Excellence and the Northern Ireland Curriculum for Primary. As well as PScales, Pre-key stage 1 and 2, Greater Depth, CoEL, ECaT and EYDJ frameworks.
