This focused workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to analyse your school's performance data more effectively.

On the 31 July 2017, the RAISEonline service for schools will be closed and it will be replaced with a new service called Analyse School Performance (ASP), which provides interactive analysis of school and pupil performance data.

Our training will enable you to make sense of your school's performance data and the analyses generated by ASP, in order to hold leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils. Thus performing a core function of the governance required of all boards. 

This is part of a series of workshops, others include:

Joining or forming a multi-academy trust (MAT)

Improving Financial Efficiencies in Schools

Understanding and Using Performance Related Pay (PRP)

Pupil Premium - making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged pupils

New to Governance - your role and responsibilities 

Suitable For

This workshop is suitable for all school governors who want to further develop their understanding of key school governance processes and systems.

This training will help you to develop your skills; enabling you to effectively contribute to the three core functions of governance required of all school and academy boards:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.
