Measuring a school’s progress, performance and impact remains a challenging task for many school leaders. Deciding what to measure and how, and the best way of reporting on it all depends on your unique school, community, team and of course your strategic plan.
Our Strategic Measurement for Schools programme is designed to tackle these challenges head-on!
“[The programme] has identified gaps in practice between what the school says it values and the actual ability to measure this and demonstrate achievement"
