"A must for any SLT member with responsibility for data. Wisdom, expertise and a good measure of common sense shared openly." Delegate, 2017

Returning in autumn 2018, these popular conferences will guide and support leaders as they navigate their way through the sea of school performance data.  

Highlighting changes to headline measures, including changes to Progress 8 and the new EBacc points measure, these essential conferences will also tackle recent announcements regarding changes to the floor standard and coasting.

ASCL’s data conferences provide:

  • advice to school leaders on how to interpret and respond to data

  • a summary of changes to key tools such as Analyse School Performance and Ofsted’s IDSR

  • an opportunity to understand how best to use performance data for self-evaluation and improvement

  • a number of workshops, including a session for anyone new to leading data in a secondary school

Suitable for members of the senior leadership team, school data managers, and officers in local authorities and multi-academy trusts.
