The Inspection Dashboard has been created to support the NEW Inspection arrangements for September 2015. This powerful dashboard provides you the tools to prepare for the NEW 2015 Inspection process.

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 School Inspection Dashboard.

This excellent training session provides an opportunity for you to gain excellence 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 attainment, progress, thresholds, Phonics, Early Years Foundation Stage Profile, Prior Attainment, Closing the Gap and Attendance 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 schools effectiveness

OFSTED will also look for evidence relating to:

• the proportion of pupils making and exceeding expected progress is high compared with national figures
• pupils making rapid and sustained progress across many subjects, including English and mathematics
• the learning, quality of work and progress of groups of pupils, particularly those who are disabled, those who have special educational needs and those for whom the pupil premium
provides support, show that they achieve exceptionally well
• 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 disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, 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 FULL DAY RAISEonline Training will help you Understand, Interpret and Analyse your 2014/15 RAISEonline Report to support you to become Data Literate Leaders and meet the New 2014/15 OFSTED expectations and provide quality evidence to support your school evaluations and school improvement.

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

• ensure your VA scores for all pupils reach 100 (primaries) / 1000 (secondaries) for all pupils/pupil groups in your school

• 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 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 Summary Report and complete a next step action plan in response to your RAISEonline data.

English and Maths leaders, SENCo’s and Gifted and Talented leaders will have the opportunity to develop Subject based action plans in relation to their subject responsibilities and subject based data. This also ensures an analysis of trends across a 3 year period.

Senior Management Teams/Data Managers will have the opportunity to put together a RAISEonline 2014/15 booklet summarising key RAISEonline data information relevant for sharing with school stakeholders and OFSTED.

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