Information and data collection
Information and data collection is crucial to building a picture of schools in Wales and providing them with the tools for self-evaluation and improvement. The information we collect is used for a variety of reasons.
We gather data on elements of school life such as attendance levels, the number of pupils eligible for free school meals,the number of teachers and pupils’ results at GCSE and A level.
One of the principles of our information and data collection is that data will only be requested and stored if it will be useful. This data is used to help develop our policies, to help to improve schools and to publish reports for schools, teachers, governors and parents.
