The default formative content that appears on your Sonar Tracker account is the Sonar Curriculum, which has been developed by our education specialists to provide the appropriate coverage of key subjects for primary aged pupils.
We appreciate that schools may want to create and add their own formative content to Sonar Tracker, to make the system more specific to your school. We therefore have a simple process in order for you to do this.
- Read the information and guidance on this page.
- Download the template at the bottom of this page.
- Populate the template with your content.
- Return the completed template to us for upload onto your account.
The cost of the formative content customisation is £149 + VAT and your school will be invoiced once the work has been completed.
**We can upload multiple subjects/objectives from a single template therefore in the interest of saving you money we recommend you try to make all changes at once as each extra upload will incur the £149 +VAT charge**
In the customisation template you will see the following headings:
|Subject*||Subject name as it will appear in Formative Assessment e.g. Mathematics|
|Strand*||Strand name as it will appear in Formative Assessment e.g. Mathematics - Number. All subjects require at least 1 Strand.|
|Strand 2 (optional)||If you are wanting to split the objectives within a strand down further, then you can use a sub-strand e.g. Mathematics – Number – Addition and Subtraction.|
|Objective Description*||The objective text as it will appear in the formative section of Sonar. The objective text can be pasted or typed into the template.|
|Pupil Friendly Objectives (optional)||If you have pupil friendly versions of the objectives, then these can be entered into this field. The pupil friendly objective text can be pasted or typed into the template.|
|Year Group*||Enter the Year Group that the objective is allocated to. The valid Year Group values are: Pre Entry, Entry 1, Entry 2, Nursery 1, Nursery 2, Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6, Year 7, Year 8, Year 9.|
Fields marked with an * are mandatory.
Example of Subject & Strand Fields:
Subject - Mathematics
Strand - Number
Strand 2 - Addition and Subtraction

**Please note it is your responsibility to check for spelling mistakes and/or errors as the spreadsheet will not be checked for these by our team. Correcting errors once the upload has been completed may incur additional charges**
Once you have populated the template with your formative content submit a support request with the template attached or email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our team will upload the formative content to your account.
