Code: OPL/19/162 Using External School Performance Data (Cancelled)

If governing boards are to hold their schools effectively to account for pupils’ achievement, they need to ask meaningful questions about pupil attainment and progress data.

The approach is a pragmatic look at the questions raised by our schools’ main external data sources, helping governors from primary schools to understand the terminology, identify the areas for improvement and relate data to real school performance.
