Using data to refine your school improvement priorities

School improvement: Building a rigorous evidence base


Max 15 delegates / KS4 only

This course, incorporating aspects of both Ofsted’s evolving inspection framework and IDSR, will give you a flexible opportunity to review and refine your school priorities. Enhanced by key ASP and Aspire reports, this course will give you the opportunity to develop a bespoke narrative for your school. 

Numbers are strictly limited as this intensive course has a personalised approach.

Course Objectives:


  • Collate evidence to support and triangulate identified areas to investigate. 
  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of how data can refine your school improvement priorities. 
  • Consider, with evidence, curriculum provision and strategic planning.
  • Use Aspire reports to supplement those in ASP and IDSR.

During this practical hands-on course, you will:


  • Access personalised support from a member of our team to produce a secure evidence base
  •  Consider curriculum provision to address Ofsted’s key priorities of Intent, Implementation and Impact. 
  • Use Aspire’s comprehensive dataset to formulate a cohort profile of your pupil groups, including those with multiple characteristics, across the whole school.
  • Work with your data to drill down into subject areas, pupil groups and individual pupils.

To obtain full value from this course, delegates should bring along a copy of their:
