What you will learn

We found this training extremely useful. We will be using what we have learnt today in developing our data collection and presentation.

The Inspection Dashboard has been created to support the NEW Inspection arrangements for 2016. This powerful dashboard provides you with the tools to prepare for the NEW 2016 Inspection process.

OFSTED Inspectors will use the INSPECTION DASHBOARD for short inspections.

The NEW RAISEonline Inspection Dashboard Course focuses on providing technical guidance for using the Inspection Dashboard and the methodology used to highlight strengths or weaknesses on the data contained in your Inspection Dashboard.

This excellent training session provides an opportunity for you to gain outstanding guidance and advice to support your understanding why strengths and weaknesses are highlighted and effective use of the Inspection Dashboard.

You will gain valuable information to assist you in interpreting the charts included on the Inspection Dashboard. You will also learn about the progress, attainment for English, Maths, EBACC, Open Elements, will also learn about Science, Humanities and Languages Value Added and attainment, as well as threshold measures such as % attaining English & Maths and % EBACC. Your training will also cover Attendance, Exclusions and Context in 2016 measures that have been used to calculate strengths and weaknesses across subjects and pupil groups highlighted on the dashboard.

WHY is analysing your RAISEonline Report so important?

When Ofsted visit your school they will wish to see evidence relating to your understanding of your RAISEonline Inspection Dashboard and your drive to raise Attainment and VA measures in your school across subjects and pupil groups.

When judging achievement, inspectors must have regard for pupils’ starting points and age, and the progress that the lowest attaining pupils are making.

The NEW full day Inspection Dashboard RAISEonline Training course will take account of:

• learning and progress across Key Stages and different groups of pupils in your school, including disabled pupils, those who have special educational needs, ethnic minorities and those for whom the Pupil Premium provides support.

The New Full day Inspection Dashboard RAISEonline Training will also support your staff and governors to understand the way in which OFSTED Inspectors:

• Use, Interpret and Analyse your RAISEonline data in your Inspection Dashboard
• Judge pupils’ attainment and progress
• Make judgements about a school's effectiveness

OFSTED will also look for evidence relating to:

• pupils making rapid and sustained progress across English, Maths, EBACC and Open Elements as well as Science, Humanities and Languages Value Added.
• the learning, quality of work and progress of groups of pupils, particularly those who are disabled and those who have special educational needs.
• where the proportion making expected progress overall is lower than that found nationally, it is improving over a sustained period.
• the school takes effective action to enable most pupils, including SEN pupils to reach their potential.
• the standards of attainment of almost all groups of pupils are likely to be at least in line with national averages, with many pupils attaining above this.

The NEW Inspection Dashboard RAISEonline Training will help you Understand, Interpret and Analyse your Inspection Dashboard to support you to become Data Literate Leaders and meet the New OFSTED expectations and provide quality evidence to support your school evaluations and school improvement.

This Inspection Dashboard RAISEonline training opportunity will also support you to become a Good/Outstanding school, well prepared for OFSTED by helping you:

• analyse your school progress across the school
• help you to ensure your school interventions have great, positive impact across all pupils and pupil groups in your school

The Inspection Dashboard RAISEonline Training will also provide you with the tools, knowledge and expertise to calculate your own pupil/school value added scores quickly and easily.

Throughout the training session you will complete a full analysis of your RAISEonline Inspection Dashboard and complete a next step action plan in response to your RAISEonline data.

Senior Management Teams/Data Managers will have the opportunity to put together a RAISEonline booklet summarising key Inspection Dashboard data information relevant for sharing with school stakeholders and OFSTED.

We are the only National Training Company offering Interactive Inspection Dashboard RAISEonline Training linked to School Improvement, Leadership and Management and the New Ofsted Framework across schools nationally.

The RAISEonline Training combines Interactive guidance and support navigating your way through RAISEonline site features and functions to enable you to make best effective use of your data in supporting school evaluation and school improvement.
