Code: OPL/19/035 Using External School Performance Data

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 aim of the session is to promote governors' understanding and practical use of external school data; however this is a course about school improvement, not statistics. 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. This training is free to governors who's school subscribe to Governor Training, otherwise the cost is £150 per governor
