: Date 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.

Having regular sight of key data enables boards to understand ‘root causes’ behind barriers to learning and the drivers behind success. This new guidance contains tables, tools and templates with examples of how they can be used.

Governors in maintained schools and Board Trustees may find it useful to compare the information they receive with the key themes in this guide.
