  • Detailing the range of data tools currently available from the government, such as Analyse School Performance (ASP), to enable schools to effectively examine their performance and identify areas of weakness
  • Presenting ASP and other data tools as an opportunity to support disadvantaged pupils, highlighting that these students’ progress must be carefully monitored
  • Highlighting the importance of self-evaluation, in addition to Ofsted inspections and exam results, as essential to ensuring staff, parents and governors are informed of schools’ performance and targets
