  • 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
