How can we track progress incrementally against whole-school targets? We include a KeyDoc template for tracking progress against targets in a school improvement plan (SIP). We also relay advice from one of our experts on setting measurable targets in SIPs and monitoring progress towards them.

Downloadable template

We worked with one of our associate education experts, David Driscoll, to create a template for schools to track progress on priorities identified in the school improvement plan (SIP). David has considerable experience of supporting schools to analyse their data to improve achievement, teaching and leadership.

For a specific SIP target, you can record information under the following column headings:

  • Date
  • Sub-target
  • Reviewer(s)
  • Outcome
  • Comments

The KeyDoc also features a completed example, illustrating how progress can be measured against targets.

You can download the template and completed example from the following link:
