School Data Network

This long standing network provides specialist services to schools, academies, co-ordinating bodies (local authorities, schools clusters, federations and academy sponsors) and corporate educational services clients in how to make best use of their performance data – both academic and financial.

  • For Schools and Academies;
    • Presenting academic progress data for OFSTED
    • Benchmarking academic performance data against other similar schools nationally
    • Using tools to collect and analyse performance data
    • Creating internal mechanisms to contextualise academic performance data
