Understanding your data – new guidance for academy board trustees and school governors

Understanding your data – new guidance for academy board trustees and school governors

Consultant: Ruth Murton and Steve BarkerDate posted: July 2018

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has published new guidance, to support maintained school governors and academy trustees’ understanding of the range of data that should be available to them to inform their discussions and decisions.
