Performance Data

Academic Year 2016-2017

About Us

The Gateshead school performance monitoring team provides robust reports and information for a variety of audiences: school leaders; governors; link inspectors; Gateshead’s Oversight and Scrutiny Committee and Cabinet; and the local press.

We use a number of data sources. As a member of the National Consortium for Examination Reporting (NCER) we use the data the consortium supplies, and their software services, to produce early reports on key performance indicators at all Key Stages along with our own bespoke reports. Other data sources include: returns provided by schools; the DfE’s ‘Analyse School Performance’ reports; the Department for Education’s statistical releases; Fischer Family Trust’s analyses; Ofsted’s ‘Inspection Data Summary Reports’; and Acorn demographic data.

We routinely download sets of performance data when they are released and store them in our own data base so that we can interrogate the data for our own research purposes when questions arise.
