How does the course work?

Using the Primary IDSR is a video-led online course.

Linda Brown, our Leadership and Management expert and ex-headteacher will walk you through a slideshow packed full of data analysis insights and exercises.

  • You will be walked through a real-life example of a school’s Inspection Data Summary Report with guidance and notes provided throughout
  • You will be asked to examine and draw your own conclusions of the IDSR, building a picture of good practice when analysing such data
  • You will get insight and annotations into the kind of things you should be on alert for
  • Bonus: when signing up to this course, you will get access to our accompanying resource Understanding the Inspection Data Summary Report (IDSR) Primary – A Pragmatic Approach 

Why is this important?

The ISDR is one of a number of national data sets, and analysing information well, including generating questions can help school leaders to understand the context in which they work and identify priorities for school improvement.

Crucially, this data analysis will allow you to:

  • Benchmark and highlight significant differences between your school and others across subjects
  • Provide genuine strategies for improvement based on fact to school stakeholders and Ofsted to show forward-thinking and productivity
  • Give a truer indication of areas that may require further investigation (strengths and weaknesses) to feed into school improvement

About Services For Education

Services For Education Logo

At Services For Education we provide a wide range of face to face services and professional development opportunities to enhance teaching and champion school improvement across Birmingham.

In 2018, we came to the realisation that, due to budget cuts and time strains on teachers and school leadership teams, face-to-face training courses are not always a viable option for teaching staff.

So, this year we launched our new range of online courses to suit the super-busy educational professionals that are passionate about their CPD, but don’t necessarily have the time to take even half a day out of the classroom.

Flexible and affordable, our video-lead courses can be completed at your own pace, paused and restarted and re-watched as many times as you like.

We currently have online courses covering Safeguarding, emotional wellbeing in the classroom, the Primary IDSR and working with parents, but watch this space.

Alternatively, if you feel you would prefer face-to-face interaction, we do offer a wide range of in-house training sessions and bespoke, centre-based consultations, depending on your needs. A number of these are accredited or validated by external organisations to provide delegates with a nationally recognised certification. Find out more about us here.
