Using data to identify low attainment, weak progress and gaps in attainment has long been a focus of schools. This National Strategies booklet, published in 2009, aims to support senior teams, in both primary and secondary phases, by setting out a practical approach for seeing analysis through to impact, with a particular focus on narrowing gaps for disadvantaged groups of students.

 

The booklet focuses of four key elements of addressing under-performance of particular groups of students:

  • Know the gaps (good data analysis that leads to action and impact)

  • Narrow the gaps (planning for progression, effective pedagogy, personalised intervention)

  • Mind the gaps (systematic assessment and tracking)

  • Celebrate gap busting (acknowledge and build on successes)
