What is Educational Outcomes?

Educational Outcomes is a unique, powerful database for analytics and comparison at KS2, KS4 and KS5. It combines three official DfE and Ofsted sources into one to provide key contextual and performance data on every state-funded school in the country. Primary and secondary versions of the database are available exclusively to SSAT members.

Educational Outcomes enables you to benchmark your school’s performance against other schools using over 40 different metrics. And it supports networking and collaboration by letting you identify schools in similar circumstances to your own with whom you could share practice and ideas.

Educational Outcomes 2019 gives you:

  • An at-a-glance, one page summary of every maintained primary and secondary school’s attainment, progress, absence, narrowing of gaps, contextual and Ofsted data – select your own school and then compare it with another
  • Scatter charts showing your school’s attainment and progress in relation to that of every other school in the country relative to prior attainment
  • A searchable database allowing you to select school characteristics or performance data to track down schools you might want to work with. This year’s version has more fields to choose from than ever before, including not only gaps for disadvantaged students but also by gender. You can also select a group of schools according to their proportion of boys or girls to help find a similar school to your own

Educational Outcomes is regularly updated during the year to take account of the latest Ofsted inspection judgements.

We were thrilled to receive this award as our school was judged by Ofsted as Requires Improvement in 2014. Our leadership team have worked tirelessly over the last two years to improve. This certificate is the icing on the cake and is now the front cover of our SEF. We have judged ourselves as Outstanding and the award has been the affirmation that we needed.
