Data for Leadership

This one-day course is designed for senior leaders who wish to:

  • Own and develop a school-wide strategy for effective use of CAT4 and other assessment data
  • Take the lead in training and upskilling key colleagues in using data
  • Provide the principal and SLT with an assessment strategy to support school self-evaluation and school development plans leading to school improvement

The session will:

  • Provide training materials that can be used to support colleagues in interpreting and analysing data to inform learning and teaching according to defined roles
  • Provide specific examples of how the data can be analysed and used to identify under and over performance, and the next steps needed
  • Support attendees to develop a school assessment plan, using best practice of scheduling and analysing data to maximise impact

Discussion is central to the workshop, and participants must be prepared to engage with and challenge others’ ideas, as well as defending and developing their own. As a result, participants should be able to leave with a fully developed action plan for the remainder of the academic year.

Who should attend?

  • Principals, Deputy Principals, Heads of Assessment, Curriculum Co-ordinators
  • Whoever is responsible for ensuring the effective use of assessments within the school to improve teaching and learning

Why attend?

  • Guided, hands-on analysis of sample / your school’s data with materials to take back to your school
  • Develop a school assessment plan, using best practice of scheduling and analysing data to maximise impact
  • Share experience and best practice
