Data dashboard

Each state school in England now has a data dashboard on the Ofsted website, giving you a ‘snap shot’ of how well the school is doing.  It tells you how good exam results are, how well pupils progress from where they started at the school, how good attendance is, and how well disadvantaged pupils do at the school, compared to non-disadvantaged pupils.

How does this affect your choice of school?

The data dashboard is a good starting point, if you are considering a school for your child.  If progress and attendance are above the national average, then this could be a school that you consider. If progress and attendance are below the national average, then this would be a cause for concern.
