Having access to and knowing how to use accurate and reliable data, is crucial for all school leaders to effectively govern their institutions, improve student outcomes, and demonstrate this to external stakeholders, including accreditation bodies and parents.
Quality data provides a comprehensive understanding of student potential and performance, empowering school leaders to make informed decisions about CPD priorities, allocate resources appropriately, and develop evidence-based policies.
In contrast, rectifying the errors caused by data mismanagement or an inefficient data strategy incurs financial costs and wastes valuable time and resources as schools try to fix the wrong thing for the wrong reasons. Worse, it obstructs efforts to address achievement gaps and can result in students failing to achieve their full potential.
Therefore, school leaders must prioritise the collection, maintenance, and analysis of reliable data. By doing so, they can ensure effective governance, and ultimately provide the best possible education for their students.
