Kickstart your school improvement plan with Arbor Insight Reports

When you’re putting together your School Improvement Plan, an important first step is to gather evidence of your school’s performance. Understanding your attainment in depth, including the attainment gaps between different student groups and the factors that cause them, will help you identify the areas your improvement efforts could have the most impact.

Since there are no performance tables or ASP data from the DfE this year, the best place to look is at your prior attainment data (averages over three years are ideal) as a starting point.  

To give you a full picture of your school’s attainment from the last three years, we’ve released a bundle of our most popular Arbor Insight reports (usually worth £300-400) exclusively for free. Find out more below or go straight to download your reports here.

How Arbor Insight reports can help

Gathering full and reliable prior attainment data could mean lengthy searching through DfE performance tables, and pulling together internal spreadsheets and student records. 

To save you time this term and help you kickstart your school improvement planning, our exclusive bundle of our Arbor Insight reports will show you the full picture of your students’ progress and attainment over the last three years, giving you the context you need to see where to focus your school improvement strategy. 

You can download your reports from your free benchmarking portal – Arbor Insight – used by over 10,000 schools in the UK to dig deeper into their results and benchmark their performance.

Here’s what the reports will help you to achieve:

  • Visualise your students’ progress – Using three-year rolling averages, your reports will help you understand how consistent your performance has been over time and quickly spot any inconsistencies and identify anomalies 
  • Instantly spot attainment gaps – Your reports will help you understand how gaps have emerged between your key demographic groups (such as SEN, Pupil Premium, disadvantaged & EAL) and the school & national averages, so you can better support your most at-risk students post-lockdown
  • Understand the impact of socio-economic factors – Using contextual information about the area your school is in, your reports will help you look at all the factors affecting your students’ attainment 
  • Benchmark your school against others – Your reports benchmark your headline measures against other schools nationally, your LA, Top Quintile schools and similar schools to you, allowing you to put your school’s performance in its wider context 
  • Give your Governors the background they need – Saving you time gathering data, your reports are also presented in easy-to-understand PDFs with colour-coded charts and expert analysis, ready to share at your next Governor meeting
