Establish consistent reporting from your middle leaders with our adaptable template so you can save time searching for the insight you need.

Our thanks to our associate experts, Jeremy Bird and David New, and former teaching staff at The Key, for their help with this article.

If you’re a middle leader, be sure to check with your headteacher first before using the advice in this article - they might already have a template/system for you to use.

Make sure these reports won’t add unnecessary workload

Be mindful that Ofsted will:

  • Look at whether the way in which you collect attainment and progress data is proportionate, efficient and sustainable for staff
  • Take into account your staffs’ workload and wellbeing
  • Discuss with staff whether assessment practices create unnecessary burdens

Ofsted won’t look at non-statutory internal progress and attainment data or your analysis and interpretation of data. Instead, inspectors will focus on your curriculum.
