Databusting Bristol with James Pembroke and Richard Selfridge

Bridge Learning Campus, Teyfant Road, Hartcliffe, Bristol, BS13 0RF
November 19th, 2021 8:45 am
8.45 - 15.30

A day aimed at primary school senior leaders and assessment leads to help navigate the fog of assessment and rationalise your data life.

Assessment in schools is often directed from the top down with a heavy focus on accountability, but how about we turn that on its head? With Ofsted’s recent change in direction, schools have license to do just that: build an approach from the classroom upwards, that works for both teachers and pupils and restores faith in assessment.

The day will:

  • Review and update your approach to assessment, making data work effectively in the light of the revised Education Inspection Framework
  • Clarify what you need to know about data, what you have to do (and what you do not need to do), and what you should do to assess and monitor progress and attainment whilst minimising workload and maximising impact in your school
  • Cover key aspects of primary data including: statutory assessment present and future, progress measures, confidence intervals, target setting, standardised tests, IDSR, ASP, and tracking systems.

Ticket includes refreshments and lunch.

Making the most of Insight: a guide for SENDCOs

webinar
February 10th, 2021 4:00 pm
1 hour + Q&A

Insight is a simple yet highly customisable system that provides a number of useful tools for SENDCOs. In this session you’ll find out how to set up bespoke groups, enter SEND-specific data, create sets of objectives for your interventions, use filters to identify pupils with particular characteristics, and run key reports to pinpoint issues. We will focus on using Insight’s Tables report tool to pull all key data – both characteristics and assessments – into one place to track progress over time, and will show examples of how a table can calculate the change in, for example, reading age during a period of support. We will also demonstrate how such data can be summarised for the purposes of monitoring the effectiveness of SEND provision.

Audience: primary SENDCOs, senior leaders, and assessment leads.

Please note: registration is not a guarantee of entry to the webinar. Entry is limited to 100 places and will be on a first come first served basis. The session will be recorded and broadcast after the event.
