Data is the oil that fuels all walks of school life.

But schools have always been data-rich and system and information poor. Many resemble a football field of molehills and badger mounds with soil flying everywhere. But what do all these piles of data mean?

Senior leaders need to be able to look at data across their buildings to learn which students, environments, staff and programmes are having success and which are not. But it is a skill and an art to organise, analyse, and interpret data properly.

This is why sustainable gains in achievement requires an investment in a dynamic system to identify and use data and convert it into high quality information to improve teaching, learning and assessment. For skilled leaders, data can be a compelling force in improving schools.

Evaluate-Ed gives you the tools needed to probe for causes of underperformance, analyse the conditions that are contributing to varying levels of student achievement, and develop and implement improvement strategies.

Teachers need to know how to examine student performance if they are to understand which parts of their teaching are making an impact. They can then use this information to revisit areas of the curriculum that are not being learned, target attention and incorporate new techniques for students having difficulties.

But Evaluate-Ed does so much more than focus on the educational outcomes.

This remarkable system has been configured to swiftly and securely analyse every core aspect of a school from finance and governance to premises and staff wellbeing allowing you to instantly react to emerging risks and shortfalls.

It does this by asking intuitive questions which are then used to generate an action plan so you can then monitor progress as you work towards agreed goals. Using data-led school improvements recommendations helps feed into your SDP, SIP and annual SEF.
