Information Management and Data Analysis
Data provided by our team is widely used to support self-evaluation and set school improvement priorities. The School Analysis Pack - initially provided to sold-service subscribers at the end of the summer term and updated in the autumn term - enables schools to demonstrate during Ofsted inspections, accurate performance information for current pupils analysed by various national indicators and demographic criteria.
We offer training*, telephone support and written guidance* to all schools for statutory returns throughout the year, including the termly school census and annual Key Stage Assessments.
We work closely with the Council’s Learning and Skills Division to ensure that our guidance to schools and the analysis that we provide, reflects the changing criteria set out by the Department for Education.
Using the Perspective Lite website, we are able to offer a secure data sharing platform to all schools, with additional interactive, dynamic functionality available to sold-service subscribers, enabling early access to emerging national assessment data.

How we can help
Termly census - general guidance and telephone support for all schools, links to full Department for Education guidance and full written guidance and telephone support for users of RM Integris. Training for the Spring Census is offered to RM Integris users.
Assessment - support and guidance for all schools, plus specific written guidance and training for RM Integris users on how to record and return the annual Key Stage Assessments during the summer term.
Unique Pupil Numbers (UPNs) - our team are able to access the National Pupil Database and schools are encouraged to check with us if they do not know a pupil’s UPN, for example if a child is taken on roll and no details have been received from the previous school.
