Educational Outcomes combines three official DfE and Ofsted sources into one to provide key contextual and performance data on every state-funded school in the country.
What is Educational Outcomes?
Educational Outcomes is SSAT’s unique performance analysis tool, combining official DfE and Ofsted sources into one database to show you performance and contextual data using over 40 different metrics for your own school and for every state-funded school in the country. You can also use the database to identify schools in similar circumstances to your own to help you collaborate, network and share ideas.
Educational Outcomes for 2023 – early release now available
In its current format, Educational Outcomes has been a valued resource for school leaders for more than a decade.
We have produced an early version of Educational Outcomes 2023 for KS4 following the release of the unvalidated data in October. This version provides an at-a-glance profile of each English secondary school showing key performance indicators, a scatter chart of progress compared with attainment to give an indication of overall achievement and a searchable database to identify potential schools for future collaboration.
We are providing it as a resource for schools to see their own results presented in a clear, accessible format and to see where they sit in the overall national picture, not as a tool to compare school performance.
The full version will be available to SSAT members in early February based on the release of validated data at the end of January.
The full version of Educational Outcomes 2023 will give you:
- A one-page profile of your chosen school – you no longer have to use the drop-down box to select a school – double-click in the school name box, delete the current school, start typing and the box will auto-fill with your chosen school. Check your Excel security settings to make sure that macros are enabled if this doesn’t work for you.
- Three scatter charts showing how your school compares with all schools nationally – choose from ‘prior attainment and attainment 8’, ‘prior attainment and progress 8’ and, as an indicator of overall achievement, ‘attainment 8 compared with progress 8’
- A searchable database of all schools showing school context and characteristics followed by 37 performance indicators that include breakdowns by gender and disadvantage
- Direct links to each school’s latest Ofsted report and grades (as at 31 December 2023)
Educational Outcomes is revised during the spring and summer terms to include the latest Ofsted information and any updates we make. You can check the version number to ensure that you are using the most up-to-date version.
