We are increasingly being asked to collect attainment data for the Looked After Children whom we monitor on behalf of the Authorities and are now able to collect:
- Examination results
- Termly teacher assessments
- Other specialist areas e.g. phonics
This data collection process is achieved through a number of different methods. We have recently developed what is known as the schools portal which allows a specific person from the education provision of the child to log into a secure website to disclose the results which the child has gained.
In addition to this we will also request the results via email and phone calls from the provisions if the results have not been submitted through the schools portal. We currently make a minimum of 4 attempts to gain the results, but for the Spring Term have made up to 7 requests for the information in most cases, which has translated into a response rate of over 90%.
