Welcome to FFT

FFT Aspire is our new reporting and data tool for schools, LAs and Academy Trusts.  It provides accurate and insightful information enabling pupils to achieve their full potential and schools to improve. Using a set of interactive dashboards, data is presented in an easy to use format allowing schools to quickly evaluate past performance, identify strengths and weaknesses and set challenging targets for the future. Dashboards are currently available from KS1 to KS4 with KS5 to follow later this year.  They are designed for a wide range of users including teachers, subject leaders, department heads, senior school leaders, advisors, LAs, Academy sponsors/chains and regional consortia.

How do I access FFT Aspire?

To access FFT Aspire you will need to subscribe to FFT through either your Local Authority or directly through FFT.

FFT Data For Primary Schools

FFT Aspire provides primary schools with an easy to use set of visual dashboards to analyse performance at both KS1 and KS2.  The dashboards are split into 2 key areas:
 
Self Evaluation
The starting point for effective pupil and school improvement is understanding your school – identify key strengths and weaknesses, analyse subject and pupil group variation, find out which interventions have worked and which haven’t.

By comparing attainment and progress in your school to the attainment and progress of pupils nationally, FFT Aspire provides high quality self evaluation reports early in the autumn term when it’s most likely to have the greatest impact.   Find out more here.
 
Target setting
Aspire provides a personalised approach to pupil target setting, underpinned by national progress data.  Use FFT’s range of benchmarks – average, high or very high progress – to set the right level of challenge for your pupils. 
 
New features include:
·The ability to set pupil targets within FFT Aspire and view the likelihood of achieving those targets
·The ability to import new pupils into FFT Aspire and view benchmarks for those pupils
·New ‘challenge slider’ allows schools to set more realistic but ambitious targets
 
Latest features and data updates for primary schools
·Aspire now includes pupils from the 2014 DfE Autumn Census
·Updated benchmark estimates for all KS2 pupils (KS1 available in FFT Aspire at the end of Feb 2015.  Currently available in FFTLive)
·A new Aspire pupil import tool – schools can import new pupils for target setting (i.e. those pupils that have started at a school since the Autumn Census in October 2014);
·A new Aspire export tool - schools can export benchmark estimates and targets for pupils in KS2 (FFTLive can be used to export estimates for KS1).

For more details about current and future releases, download the Aspire Release Schedule for Primary Schools here.

Is FFTLive still available?

Please note that FFTLive will be switched off at the end of the 2015 summer term. To log into FFTLive please visit fftlive.org.uk.
