What’s in Aspire for Trusts

Target setting

FFT Target Setting provides trusts with both aggregated and school-level estimates to support the setting of aspirational and challenging targets for your pupils and schools.

Targets can be customised with varying levels of challenge to suit the needs of your schools and their pupils. Then use FFT's year 1-13 Target Setting reports to monitor performance and identify particular schools, cohorts and groups at risk of underperformance.

Pupil tracking

FFT's new tracking system for trusts brings together all of the assessment data from your primary schools in one place. Use our dedicated set of eight comparative reports to gain a thorough understanding of your termly and yearly progress for the trust and your schools.

FFT's pupil tracking is based on a single common currency of DfE scaled scores so you can make like-for-like comparisons no matter which assessments your schools are doing. Whenever your next assessment point, we’ll turn the data around quickly in order to provide you with your aggregated weekly reports.

Performance analysis

FFT Aspire provides a full evaluation of your trust's performance at the end of KS1, KS2, KS4 and KS5. The trust-level Self-Evaluation dashboard comprises seven reports and benchmarks trust and school performance against national data and similar schools.

It quickly identifies high and low performers across schools, subjects and pupil groups using the full range of DfE attainment and progress measures. Use the data to identify best practice and support trust-wide improvement.

Attendance tracking

Easily track and analyse attendance data for your trust and schools with FFT's Attendance Tracker. Around 10,000 schools across England are now receiving their weekly reports.

You can analyse your aggregated attendance and absence information by trust, schools, pupil groups and year groups. Our reports enable you to compare and monitor your year 1-11 cohorts against the national picture on a week-by-week basis and also against cumulative, year-to-date figures.
