Why should I upgrade to Sonar Tracker?
Put simply, Sonar Tracker will help you to maximise the impact of quality assessment and analysis on pupil outcomes in your school.
Sonar is the culmination of the great features in the market leading pupil trackers in the Juniper suite, including all the best tried and tested functionality with some game-changing new unique features that will save you time and make it easier for you to ensure all your pupils reach their potential.
Every feature, function and widget included has been carefully chosen and designed to help you spot opportunities to maximise the outcomes of all your pupils. We’ve updated everything, from how you record assessment to the analysis and reporting tools (including a refined Point-In-Time Assessment model (PITA)). Schools using Sonar Tracker this academic year are already noticing the time they’re saving and the reduction in teacher workload when it comes to assessment.
Sonar Tracker also has new and unique features that you won’t find in any other web-based tracker. The curriculum view shows how pupils are performing against their objectives and the opportunities/modelling function helps identify pupils who would benefit from extra support and shows the impact.
What’s more, with Sonar Tracker you can:
- Compare your pupil assessment data with 6000 other schools- using our unique benchmark reports, the Juniper national dataset is one of the largest for Primary school pupils (includes 6000 schools and 500,000 pupils)
- Access unrivalled expertise for CPD, training, consultancy and support – our popular bite-size drop-in days covering a range of Sonar Tracker and assessment topics and an initial tracker best-practice CPD webinar are all included
How much will it cost?

What is Wonde?
Wonde is our third party data integration provider. We work with Wonde to sync your tracker with your MIS to ensure your pupil information is kept up-to date.
Our school doesn’t currently work with Wonde – is that an issue?
No. If you don’t already use Wonde that’s not a problem. They will contact you directly to set up a connection and the process is simple and straightforward.
What does the upgrade involve?
Upgrading is easy and there’s very little for you to do at school.
- We set up an automatic sync with your MIS via Wonde (our third-party integration partner) if you already use Wonde all you will need to do is approve the link. If you are new to Wonde, they’ll contact you directly to establish the connection and the process is very easy and straightforward.
- We then check your pupil data has successfully fed through to Sonar Tracker
- We will then send you a welcome email with log in details for Sonar Tracker and details of how to register for the assessment best practice CPD webinar.
Which data will be moved to Sonar Tracker?
Our third party data integration partner Wonde will add your standard pupil information to Sonar Tracker for you and you can import a CTF with your statutory data as well. If you would like to discuss any additional data migration, please contact us at email@example.com.
How long does the upgrade take?
We will begin your migration to Sonar Tracker on the 6th June and it usually takes around 10 days. You will have access to your current tracker as usual during this time.
Can we use Sonar Tracker with our bespoke curriculum?
Yes. However we do recommend schools use the standard curriculum within Sonar Tracker as this was carefully designed by our team of education experts. It’s also continually maintained and updated in accordance with any changes from the DfE.
Please let us know if you would like to continue to follow your own bespoke curriculum and if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
