We collect data to help us improve schools, develop our policies and publish reports for schools, teachers, governors and parents.

Information and data collection is crucial to building a picture of schools and providing them with the tools for self-evaluation and improvement.

Data is collected on elements of school life such as GCSE and A level pupil results, attendance levels, the number of pupils eligible for free school meals and teacher numbers.

One of the principles of our information and data collection is that data will only be requested and stored if it is useful.
