Analyse School Performance Training and Consultancy Course

This KS5 IDSR Course has been specifically designed to take into account the significant changes which will be seen in the 2019 Post 16 data releases and accountability measures containing 2018 data.

What you will learn

• How to interpret and analyse your Post 16 Inspection Data Summary Report
• How to identify gaps and trends
• How to evaluate pupil, group, subject and school performance
• How to understand the new performance measures for Post 16
• How to interpret, analyse and use the Level 3 Value Added Ready Reckoner for target setting

Course Summary

The course looks at the new KS5 Inspection Data Summary Report and offers delegates the opportunity to fully and thoroughly analyse their own data. This element of the course will focus on overall progress alongside performance at a subject level and a thorough, contextual overview of your students providing a clear basis for subsequent evaluation. During the course, we will also examine any possible gender gaps, progress according to prior attainment the analysis of performance of students by pupil characteristics. The workbook which accompanies the course lets you instantly compare your students’ performance to national figures, allowing you to identify positive trends and areas for further investigation.

In addition to the Inspection Data Summary Report overview, we look at key national statistics from the 2018 results. The course fully explains the new performance measures at Post 16 and offers guidance on how to amend your tracking and monitoring to reflect this. We also scrutinise the various ways that subject transition matrices can be used to optimise student outcomes before taking a detailed look at the Level 3 Value Added Ready Reckoner and how it can be used for target setting. The course closes with an examination of the latest Ofsted Post 16 framework, with ideas on how to address the key issues for inspection through rigorous self-evaluation.

This Key Stage 5 course was very helpful for Heads of Sixth Form trying to understand the new Data Dashboards. These documents are vital to effective preparation for Ofsted and, as such, this course would be a must for all Heads of Sixth Form who are not yet competent in this new version of performance measures. Very helpful indeed!
