The Schools Data Team provides a high quality and cost-effective research and statistics service to schools in Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster. The team is made up of experienced data analysts with expertise and in-depth knowledge of both boroughs. The team manages the analysis and benchmarking of all types of school data, including attainment, attendance and exclusions, as well as pupil characteristics information from the school census. The team is also experienced in providing comprehensive local demographic profiling.
The team is skilled in both qualitative and quantitative research methods and not only has extensive experience of data analysis and interpretation but is also able to provide a range of services to your own specifications. This can include pupil tracking, evaluating improvement initiatives and designing questionnaires. The team also delivers training in the effective understanding and use of data provided by the DfE, Ofsted and FFT, as well as training in the understanding and use of data generated in-house.
The team also provides spatial analysis and can generate maps to your own individual needs using the latest GIS mapping software. In 2016/17 we reviewed and greatly enhanced both the design and content of the Annual School Profiles and have received excellent feedback on this new format from our schools. The School Profile is included in the School Improvement SLA. For schools that have not bought into the School Improvement SLA, they can purchase their Annual School Profile separately. As ever, we are working hard to innovate our service and build on our working relationships across both boroughs. We welcome feedback on our services and look forward to working with you over the coming year.
