School visit notes and Perspective Lite

From Autumn 2016 the way in which school visit notes are managed was changed. Perspective Lite provides you with a clear audit trail of all visits to your school.

  • You will need to login to the website.
  • If you have forgotten your username or password there is a reminder option on the login page. If your account needs to be updated please contact the Data and Assessment Team, email All new Headteachers will need to contact us to have the school’s account updated.
  • Once you have logged in navigate to LA Services and click on Records of Visit. You will have a list of all the visit notes for your school, such as moderation visit notes and school effectiveness visit notes.
  • If there is an attachment to the visit note this is viewed by hovering over the ‘paperclip’ icon and clicking on the down arrow to select the attachment you want to download.
  • When a new visit note is uploaded onto the system for your school you will be informed via a message in your Perspective Lite inbox, which can be accessed in News.
  • School visit note alerts will be included within the weekly digest emailed from Perspective which is triggered if there is anything new on the account. This email is sent to the email address linked to the Perspective Lite account.

If you have any queries about the content of a visit note please contact the adviser.

If you any queries about the use of Perspective Lite please email in the first instance.
