The Understanding Your MAT Report - Brings together the key measures you need to understand your MAT’s unique strengths and challenges in a national context. An updated version of this report with 2019/20 contextual data from GIAS will be ready in October.
What can I do with my reports?
After months of disrupted learning during partial school closures and no performance tables this year, you won’t have all the usual data at your fingertips when you start your school improvement planning. Arbor Insight reports will give you a full picture of your students’ progress over the last three years, saving you time wading through DfE tables and pulling together spreadsheets.
The reports will help you:
- Spot attainment gaps and the impact of socio-economic factors on your students’ attainment
- Get you the context to discover the impact of Covid-19 on your attainment
- Identify where you need to focus your efforts this year
