Primary Data for School Improvement

Overview of Learning

In this session we will look at ways in which primary governors can use data to support the boards understanding and ability to provide effective challenge to senior leaders.  By the end of this session, you will be aware of:

  • What information is available to governors and who is responsible for providing this?
  • What questions should governors be asking?
  • The need to have regular sight of key data – interpretation and implications.
  • What Ofsted be looking at when judging pupil achievement?


All governors, trustees, and local governors of schools and academies within a Primary setting, particular those with nominated role responsibility or serving on Curriculum and School Effectiveness Committees.


Mrs Deb Butler, Head of Service, Strategic School Improvement
