Using ICFP accurately and effectively in your school (Part 2: Diagnosis of Issues and Strategic Decision-making) C24



What will I learn?

This online training session will help you to:

  • Understand the need for a narrowed down, usable core of standard ICFP metrics that are straightforward to use.
  • Know how to accurately generate data for, and consistently calculate, these metric values.
  • Understand how to use threshold values to analyse the metric values to identify potential issues in the school’s resource use.
  • Understand how to use threshold values and benchmarks to quantify the seriousness of resource use issues to guide strategic decision-making.
  • Understand how context is key to your interpretation: choices and decisions.
  • How to be confident in the interpretation of your data using metrics as an evidence base when starting a conversation with SLT and other school leaders.
  • How to work with other school leaders to explain the risks and opportunities in order to find solutions that work and make strategic decisions
