Data for School Improvement: How to meet Ofsted's data for school requirements
Join David Tyler from our RM Integris team as he discusses what you need to do to meet the new data Ofsted requirements.
You might be aware that the DfE is currently moving all school data from RAISEonline to the new Analyse school performance service or ASP, to allow for greater analysis of schools performance focussing on the headline measures.
The new system will provide a comparison of school and individual pupil levels against national averages and can be filtered on contextual data.
Before a school visit Ofsted will analyse the available data, and during the visit they will be looking to see how well school personnel know their own data, and how comfortable they are with extracting and manipulating it to inform interventions and evidence their effectiveness.
For any school undergoing an inspection, it will prove vital to have this kind of information instantly to hand, so they can put interventions in place quickly without having to wait until the year-end results.
This is where the school management information system data becomes really powerful; schools can then track attainment and progress for all their assessment needs – formative, as well as summative - and their MIS can be set up to whichever programme they are using.
