A number of updates have been made to Analyse School Performance, the Department for Education’s (DfE) data analysis tool for school leaders. Governors and Trustees will now be able to view their ‘Prior attainment of pupil by year group’ report for the 2017/2018 school year.
In addition, the DfE has changed how the ASP website will be accessed. Previously, school leaders have used the Secure Access portal to access their school’s data. Now, they will need to use the new DfE Sign-in website, having migrated their account to the new service. DfE have produced a step by step guide on how to do this.
Governors and Trustees should be reminded of the importance of scrutinising school data, and how it can help them fulfil their core functions.
