Supporting & challenging your school
• What information is now available to governors?
• What questions should governors be asking?
• Have a look at the FFT Governor Dashboard
• DFE changes to school performance indicators in 2013

achievement?

“Understanding data ... requires governors, first and
foremost, to access robust, objective data which they can
use to ask challenging questions”
“Governors need information that helps them compare
their school to other schools”
Lord Nash
“ … accessing the data is one thing. Understanding it and
having the confidence to act on it is quite another”
“the best governing bodies know exactly how well their
pupils perform across the curriculum and whether they are
making sufficient progress in relation to similar schools”
Sir Michael Wilshaw

Key questions for governors
1. How does attainment and pupil progress at my school
compare to the national average?
2. How are we performing in different subjects?
3. Do we have any under-performing groups of pupils?
4. How might the context of our school affect our performance?
5. How does pupil attendance compare to the national average?
6. What are the strengths and weaknesses of your school?

Self Evaluation: key questions for governors
1. How does attainment and pupil progress at my school
compare to the national average?
2. How are we performing in different subjects?
3. Do we have any under-performing groups of pupils?
4. How might the context of our school affect our performance?

Target Setting (future performance)
FFT provides a range of estimates (predictions) for pupils and
the school which take account of:
• Prior attainment, month of birth and gender
• School context
• Rate of progress (i.e. how much challenge school wants)
Estimates are
not targets
DFE provides a simple models to calculate and estimate
expected progress:
• Key stage 1 to 2 (2 levels progress)
• Key stage 2 to 4 (3 levels progress)
Schools use estimates to inform the setting of targets for
pupils (and cohorts of pupils) at the end of a key stage

In-year pupil tracking (current performance)
•
•
•
Schools collect regular teacher assessments (predictions) for all pupils
(every half term)
These are often ‘working at’ and/or ‘working towards’ grades
Teacher predictions can be compared to targets (for pupils and cohorts)
•
Governors should be looking at:
•
•
•
•
Latest predictions for cohorts (at end of key stage)
Compare predictions to targets (and previous predictions)
Predictions for overall overall cohorts, by subject and pupil groups (e.g. FSM)
Look for trends, patterns and exceptions (variance)
Some questions from in-year pupil tracking:
• What action and intervention will take place for pupils (or groups) who are
not on course to achieve their target?
• How accurate and reliable are the school/teacher predictions over a period
of time?

Achievement of pupils: what will Ofsted look at?
1.
2.
Learning and progress across year groups of different groups of pupils
currently on roll
Pupils’ progress in the last three years
• proportions making expected progress and the proportions exceeding expected
progress in English and in mathematics
• Value-added (progress) for the school overall and for different groups of pupils and
subjects
• Sixth Form performance and Early Years Foundation Stage Profile
• any analysis of robust progress data presented by the school, including information
provided by external organisations
3.
Pupils’ attainment (results) over three years in relation to national standards:
• performance significantly above or below national averages
• trends of improvement or decline
• inspection evidence of current pupils’ attainment across year groups using a range of
indicators
4.
Difference in achievement between those for whom the pupil premium provides
support and other pupils in the school
•
Gaps in attainment (pupil results) and achievement (pupil progress) between Pupil
Premium pupils (FSM in last 6 years) and all other pupils

Using data to support and challenge your school
• Holding the school leadership team to account: ensuring that all
pupils are making good progress
• Self evaluation: understanding strengths and weaknesses
• Setting the strategic vision for the school
• School improvement: planning, development & monitoring
• Preparing for Ofsted inspection and external accountability
• Independent support for Headteacher performance management
