Perspective Lite Features
Visit notes – From the school improvement team, KS1 moderation visits, KS2 moderation visits and EYFSP moderation are available for download.
News – You will receive communications from Angel Solutions (company that manages Perspective Lite) and from the Data and Assessment Team.
LA Document - Access to this will be crucial during July. Once you have submitted your EYFSP, Phonics screening checks, phonics screening rechecks and KS1 teacher assessments to us we will make the data you submitted available here in a report. We strongly advise you take the time to check the data in these reports as we know how busy this time of year is and therefore how easy it is to make a mistake.
Watchsted - When your school gets the call that it is about to have an inspection Watchsted can help you prepare. You can look up the inspector due to visit you and view all the inspections they have done in one place along with findings and recommendations they have made. This quick overview also gives a map of the places your inspector has visited and outlines any particular interests, such as SEN. You can also see the number of parents who have completed the survey requested by Ofsted around inspections.
Infographics - This is a very visual and quick way of seeing census data. Schools using MIS systems such as SIMS are able to generate a census file at any time which you can upload into infographics, press visualise and you have the latest contextual data for your school. This could be useful for finance or governance meetings. The condensed version can be generated and printed if this is a more useful format. It could also be of help for an Ofsted inspection. If the last official census is for the previous academic year's cohort you may be missing information. For example if you have an influx of EAL all your support and interventions will be geared to data the inspector does not necessarily have.
Data Tabs - The sections below are available to maintained schools and academies that subscribe to our data and assessment core subscription. For more information on academy subscriptions click here.
Data Reports - Such as the ones that summaries a Key stage on a page for your school. There are a variety of filters such as altering whether the data is % or counts. It is best to just have a look and get a feel for what is available.
Insight – Is a new feature linked to the data tabs in Perspective Lite. Insight provides you with data about your school and the developers are hopeful that you will find this particularly helpful with regards to sharing data with governors. The feature comes with a guide that can be accessed by clicking on 'About this Page.' Insight contains two pages: one gives visual and verbal school attainment and absence data making it accessible to a wide audience. The other outlines the school’s strengths and challenges.
