Data Collection and Management

Schools collect a wide range of data that are generally stored within their SMS system. These data could be used to form a variety of analyses.


To find patterns and trends data should be used longitudinally in a systematic and consistent manner. Evidence can be collected from both quantitative and qualitative sources. Data are collected by classroom teachers, middle leaders, senior leadership and Boards of Trustees.
