FFT Education Datalab 'Schools Like Yours' website
11 Mar 2019
FFT Education Datalab has launched a new comparison tool for schools.
Schools Like Yours lets people identify similar schools, but allows the user to define what similar means. This could be similar size, pupil/teacher ratios, funding, absence or a combination of all of these factors and many more.
Available for mainstream KS2 and KS4 schools, Schools Like Yours brings together a wide range of publicly available data including:
- School context - school type, pupil numbers, FSM, EAL, Ofsted rating
- School performance - attainment, progress, prior attainment
- Pupil Absence - absence, persistent absence
- School workforce - number of teachers, pupil-teacher ratio, QT status, age, average salary, staff sickness
- Finance - per pupil funding.
You can find out more at the Schools Like Yours blogpost or go straight to the tool and start comparing.
