Today, Fischer Family Trust (FFT) have launched the new School Performance Governor Dashboard, developed in collaboration with NGA and Wellcome Trust. For the past two years NGA has been calling for governors to have a specific summary of their school’s performance, and welcomed the launch of Ofsted’s data dashboard earlier thisyear. Despite giving a useful overview of a school’s performance, the Ofsted dashboard is somewhat restricted and does not offer the depth of detail needed by governors for effective challenge.
By contrast, the FFT dashboard includes a wide range of school performance indicators which have been calculated by FFT, including value added pupil progress for all subjects, attendance by year group and a summary of strengths and weaknesses for the school. It gives governors the information they need to answer questions about how results and pupil progress compares to other schools, and see which pupil groups (e.g. FSM/pupil premium) are making good progress.
Example versions of the dashboard are available:
Primary School Governor Dashboard
Secondary School Governor Dashboard
FFT and NGA have also collaborated to create two new briefing guides for the 'Knowing your School' series - one for secondary governors, one for primary. The briefing notes give detailed guidance for governors on how to interpret data from FFT Governor Dashboard and use it to drive school improvement.
All schools subscribing to FFT (most schools in England) will be able to download the FFT Governor Dashboard from FFTLive (www.fftlive.org) and share it easily with governors. FFT will continue developing the governor dashboard and plans for the next 12 months include extending the dashboard to Infant school (KS1) and Post-16 (KS5) and developing an online interactive dashboard.
