My name is Peter and I am a data manager in an 11-18 college in Wakefield.

I have been a data manager since May 2012 and prior to this I have worked in two local authorities in a range of similar roles from research officer to senior data and information officer. In total I have almost 12 years experience of working with schools and education data. In 2010 I completed a masters in Educational Research.

I hope the information found on these pages proves to be useful as I believe that outstanding data practice and strategy can and does make a difference in schools.

    Hi Peter

    I really appreciate this tool – and I have used it for my 2015 y11 results. However I have a query. Is the Att 8 calculation doubling the maths score? I’m not sure if that is what is happening on your spreadsheet.

    Kind regards

    Hi Peter,

    Only recently I have been given the task of introducing a new assessment without levels system. We all agree that the curriculum is the focus and students and parents do not need any numbers, but the LG would like some data to make sure everyone does what is necessary to get our boys from where they start to achieve at least their targets. This is where I am struggling at the moment how to create a layer of data behind the curriculum focused system which allows us to monitor progress. I just wonder if you would be happy to share with me how you do it.

    Do you have a BOY checklist?
    Specifically what data managers introduce to new year teachers, and reminders for seasoned teachers?
