Data Leadership: Northern Emirates and Sharjah

This one-day course is designed for Senior Leaders who wish to:

  • Own and develop a school-wide strategy for effective use of CAT4 and other assessment data
  • Feel confident to take the lead in training and upskilling key colleagues in using data (e.g. other Senior Leaders, Head of Years, Head of Departments, Head of Inclusion and class teachers)
  • Provide the Principal and SLT with an assessment strategy to support school self-evaluation and school development plans leading to school improvement

The session will:

  • Provide training materials that can be used to support colleagues in interpreting and analysing data to inform learning and teaching according to defined roles
  • Provide specific examples of how the data can be analysed and used to identify under and over performance, and the next steps needed
  • Support attendees to develop a school assessment plan, using best practice of scheduling and analysing data to maximise impact

Discussion is central to the workshop, and participants must be prepared to engage with and challenge others’ ideas, as well as defending and developing their own. As a result, participants should be able to leave with a fully developed action plan for the remainder of the 2019/20 academic year.

Who should attend?

Ideally, this will be a member of the Senior Leadership team as they need to have the authority to implement and make the necessary decisions involved:

  • Participants will have been identified as the data and assessment lead for their school and will have accountability for implementing the use of data across the school.
  • Participants should have a working knowledge of CAT4, and have introduced, or be in the process of introducing it, in their schools.
  • Participants should be prepared to share ideas with colleagues attending from other schools.

Participants and their schools will receive a certificate of attendance.
