Autumn 2022 will mark the return of the Inspection dashboard to reflect the results of statutory assessment for your school from the 2022 Academic Year. It is a document used to identify strengths and areas for development for your school. OFSTED have access to this document and use it as part of the School Inspection process. This will be the first full dashboard since the COVID 19 Pandemic.

The course will provide an overview and reminder of the data including how to analyse and interpret it, identifying strengths and areas for development. It will also look at performance of groups and the impact this has on School improvement planning. We will also consider and interpret the new progress measure that will come into effect and look carefully at the key messages from the Primary Accountability document.

During the session participants will have the opportunity to interrogate their own report and consider the implications. We will discuss the effect the Pandemic has had on children and consider how the data sources can be used to have an impact on the curriculum and children in your school as we move forward.

We will look at exactly what the data means to you as a school and what this means in terms of school improvement. We will consider key questions that you may wish to ask in your Governor Meetings.

This course is ideal for Governors who want to have a walkthrough of the data and to consider how this forms a part of the school improvement journey
