The Primary Planning Tool is a curriculum-aligned resource allowing your school to create long & short-term plans, cuntais míosúla reports and thematic lessons.
We created the Primary Planning Tool because we believe that effective teaching and learning starts with effective planning.
The Primary Planning Tool is an NCCA curriculum aligned planning tool which allows your school to create, integrate and manage your Long-term Plans, Short-term Plans, Cuntais Míosúla and Thematic planning.
In addition, Department Inspectorate notes and reports are available at any time to view, download and print.
In addition, the Primary Planning Tool provides secure cloud storage for your school's plans. This, therefore, allows you easy access to all of your teacher's reports with the click of a button. This eliminates the need to print, file & maintain printed versions of these documents.
The subject specific curriculum planner allows you to allocate individual strands, strand units and content objectives on a class by class basis across all subjects. You can choose to filter the content objectives when creating Long-term Plans, based on whether they have been included in the overall school plan or not. This feature also ensures that there is no duplication of content as children progress through the different class cycles.
Our cloud-based platform allows you to choose content objectives and outcomes from the curriculum, which is pre-populated within this tool. The platform also ensures that there is a strong linkage between plans. This occurs by allowing you to create Short-term Plans based on the content objectives and outcomes which you used for particular months of your Long-term Plan.
This feature works by allowing you to choose curriculum objectives and outcomes from the pre-populated curriculum. When selecting curriculum objectives and outcomes, you will have the option of filtering content based on your Long-term Plan, the Whole-school Plan or the Full Curriculum. This provides a strong linkage between your plans.
Additionally, the unplanned or incidental content which you delivered can also be added at the click of a button. This feature ensures that your recorded planning is a comprehensive monthly account of the teaching and learning delivered in your classroom.
These cross-curricular linkages will ensure more effective integration of the curriculum and greater understanding on the part of pupils. This integration will also ensures a more child-centred approach to planning and teaching. It creates a fun and interesting way to plan within the curriculum guidelines which allows teachers to respond to current or seasonal events.

"As a staff we looked at trying to find a user-friendly tool to help create a standard template across the school. As there are different options, we approached Áine and her team and they offered us a month free trial.
It is such a wonderful tool and after the trial we signed up for the whole school. Fantastic for multigrade class. Not alone that but Áine was always a phone call away if an issue arose. We would strongly recommend Primary Planning Tool."
"I have been using the Primary Planning Tool for many years now and it has improved and grown every year. It has adapted to all the changes that were asked of it and it sports an excellent back up service and any issue that might arise is dealt with swiftly and efficiently with no fuss. As the curriculum changed, the PPT changed and adapted too with seamless efficiency. CJ Fallon have come on board now and for any school using their textbooks, PPT is the obvious choice. An excellent piece of curriculum software."
The teachers like how the long term plans feed into the short term plans and subsequently into the Cuntas Miosúil also. We would highly recommend the Primary Planning Tool to all schools regardless of size as we are a small multi class school and it works very well for us. We look forward to continuing to use the Primary Planning Tool in future years."
