FFT data update for Primary School Leaders


This event is being run as a result of an ongoing partnership between OTSA and FFT and is only accessible to Oxfordshire Primary Schools who will be provided with a link to make the booking.

FFT will provide an update on their summer 2021 services for primary schools.

Our support this year includes:

  • The Primary Assessment Service – full attainment and Value Added Analysis of 2021 EYFS, KS1 and KS2 TAs.
  • KS1/KS2 Dynamic estimates – estimates / predictions based on a range of assessment and test inputs
  • Attendance Tracker – Track, monitor and analyse weekly attendance data
  • Primary Pupil Tracking – curriculum and assessment monitoring between key stages

FFT is running a 1 hour update session where they will outline the exciting new developments in Aspire for primary schools in 2021.

This year FFT is releasing the following services to subscribing schools:

‘On demand’ end of key stage analysis service: Once again in the absence of formal end of Key stage tests and assessments FFT will provide a 2021 results service for Year R; Year 2 and Year 6. This year we plan to run this as an ‘on demand’ service; send us your data and within 48 hours receive your report.

FFT Estimates: This year we will be taking a more flexible approach to the generation of estimates, not just from end of key stage SATs; that will not have existed for two years; but from other standardised end of key stage tests and assessments.

Attendance Tracker: Through our free Aspire Data Exchange connection we will be able to automatically collect daily attendance figures from participating schools. This will provide weekly ‘live’ reports of a school’s attendance against a ‘FFT national’ figure (from contributing schools). The reports will allow a school to analyse their attendance by year groups, key pupil groups and absence types against equivalent FFT national figures for that week.

Aspire Pupil Tracker: Update on some of the new reports and assessments that have been added to Aspire Pupil Tracker in the past few months
