Release for Secondary Schools in England

Release for Secondary Schools in England (2014 KS4 data)
The secondary release will follow on Monday 10th November.  
As many of you will know, the KS4 data has been delayed this year due to the significant changes to the accountability indicators.  FFT has now received signed-off

KS4 data from the DFE and we are now loading this into Aspire.   

In addition to the Governor Dashboard, School Summary Dashboard and LA Dashboard,   the secondary release will also include (for all schools):
  • Import new pupils  for target setting (e.g. year 7 or any new pupils for school)
  • Export data – for schools to export the new FFT benchmark estimates to school MIS or pupil tracking systems
