New secondary FFT Governor Dashboard now available


Following the release of the primary school Governor Dashboard last month, the latest Fischer Family Trust (FFT) Governor Dashboard for secondary schools is now available. This updated version contains 2013 key stage 4 results and improved gauges. In line with the government's changes to the secondary accountability system, it now also includes data about average point score (best 8) at GCSE. The FFT Governor Dashboard helps school governors hold schools to account, support and challenge the leadership team and make more informed strategic decisions. It provides governors with information about:
  • Summary school performance: analysis of the main school performance indicators including attainment (pupil results), achievement (pupil progress) and a summary of strengths and weaknesses;
  • Subjects: an analysis of pupil progress in core subjects (primary) and GCSE subjects (secondary);
  • Pupil groups:  a simple chart showing the progress made by different pupil groups over 3 years including pupil premium pupils;
  • School context:  a breakdown of school cohort by pupil groups (school and national);
  • Attendance: an analysis of absence (by pupil groups) and attendance (by year group).

For more information about the governor dashboard see the FFT Governor Dashboard webpage.
To access the dashboard for your school you need to be subscribed to FFTlive - most schools will subscribe through their local authority, although some schools may have an individual subscription. The dashboard is free for all schools subscribed to FFTlive. For more information see the FFT website 

NGA and FFT have also produced a Knowing your School briefing note for the secondary school dashboard. You can download this from the NGA website.
