Code: OPL/19/163 Using Internal School Performance Data

External school performance data provides a snapshot of certain pupils’ achievements and suggests areas for improvement but it is internal school performance data that allows governing boards to hold the school to account for all pupils’ achievements, throughout an academic year, in real time. While inspectors will not look at non statutory internal progress and attainment data they will consider the actions taken by the school in response to their internal data. his course builds on the knowledge, skills and understanding of Using External School Performance Data. This practical course, using either your own school’s information or information supplied, will develop confidence in identifying and planning for improvement, monitoring outcomes for all pupils and evaluating the effectiveness of the governing board’s plans. It will cover key terminology, essential questions and show how primary governors can use pupil data to support a dynamic system of school improvement. This training is free to governors who's school subscribe to Governor Training, otherwise the cost is £150 per governor
