  • Ensure data collected is necessary, proportionate and manageable for staff
  • Design and implement sustainable change across a school

  • Develop a communications plan that promotes or defends the school’s performance, policies or decisions effectively

  • Statistical and data analysis concepts, including confidence intervals, statistical significance, sampling, correlation and causation
  • Data collection best practice, including the principles and recommendations identified by the ‘Making Data Work’ report (2018) and the clarification of Ofsted inspection requirements
