About FFT Aspire

Start with intelligent benchmarking, end with intelligent targets.

FFT Aspire is our new reporting and data tool for schools, LAs and Academy Trusts. FFT Aspire provides key target setting and self-evaluation information using the latest curriculum and accountability measures – ideal for in-depth planning, analysis and preparation for Ofsted and Estyn inspections. 

FFT Aspire is visual and user friendly, presenting complex data in a way that can be easily understood and interpreted – from teachers and assessment co-ordinators to data managers and senior leaders, FFT Aspire helps and enhances the roles of key staff. 
Right from the start, FFT Aspire provides you with up to date information through an interactive carousel.  Located on the Aspire home page, the carousel provides real time analytics and news for your school with intelligent data delivery based on your role or subject designation.
A favourite report option provides faster access to your data, and a new intelligent search function allows you to find individual students quickly and easily.
Based on FFT’s informed and independent national research, FFT Aspire has flexible modules and a variety of reporting options to choose from so you can tailor our data to suit your needs. And as we always use the latest data available, you’ll always know that you have the latest information whenever and wherever you need it.
Reports are available at all Key Stages (from Key Stage 1* right through to Key Stage 5) and are designed for a wide range of users including teachers, subject leaders, department heads, senior school leaders, advisers, LAs and Academy sponsors/chains.
* Foundation Phase – KS5 in Wales


Using FFT data to support school improvement:

FFT will help school leaders with rigorous self evaluation of school performance, preparation for Ofsted and Estyn inspections, and provide aspirational benchmarks for future performance.
FFT provides you with access to three high-quality self evaluation reports – our School/SLT Dashboard, Subject Dashboard, and the Governor Dashboard – early in the autumn term, when its impact is greatest.

We always use the latest datasets available from the DfE and Welsh Government.

If you are short of time you can simply print off the dashboards. You can interact with your dashboards online and create your own versions. If you want to investigate further you can dive into the Student Explorer and Collaborate tools.

Reports available at all Key Stages, designed for a wide range of users. Import new students, subjects and teaching group information from your MIS and get immediate access to targets for all your pupils.
Export FFT benchmark estimates and pupil targets from FFT for in-year pupil tracking. Our new data integration function enables you to allow pre-population of target data and choose whether users can amend targets. You can also control the level of challenge by selecting default benchmark settings.
Comparison of pupil progress with national average (value added) and with similar schools (contextual value added).
