Use any curriculum to report and track progress

We know one size does not fit all. LINC-ED Hero’s customisable nature allows for any curriculum, or combination of curricula, to be added into Hero for your teachers, students and parents to engage with. Schools can adapt and extend these to meet their own needs, or add bespoke curriculum progressions, milestones and expectations.

Schools can adapt and extend these to meet their own needs. A school’s localised curriculum reflects what makes their environment special and unique. Hero makes it possible to bring this to life for the whole community. Bespoke curriculum progressions, milestones and expectations can all be added to meet every school’s specific needs and requirements.

LINC-ED Hero functions to promote student agency, opportunities for student reflection and allows for students to pioneer their learning journey, in close collaboration with their teachers. It also provides greater visibility for parents, who can closely follow and interact with their child(ren)s learning journey via the Hero app.

We can get some really simple data, really quickly. We can get our financial package in there, we can get our data package in there, we can post to parents through the app. The product is so varied and customisable which is its biggest strength

Chris, Deputy Principal, Thorrington Primary School

The software has allowed our students to have agency over their learning, has supported teachers to be co-agents of that learning and has encouraged the community to engage with our pedagogy. The capacity to celebrate learning underpins the whole Hero reporting system, and the ability to customize the platform enabled us to deliver genuinely personalised learning.
