Evidence needed

    Please help!

    I am putting together an application for a SLE post and need to provide evidence for previous roles. I want to put down evidence from historical Ofsted and exam result data and have been looking online for this info. Is there a website I can look for old exam results? On the Ofsted website I seem to only be able to find 2 Ofsted reports but want to look back further for evidence.

    Can anyone advise?

    Normally your previous HoD or MIS dept would have this info. As a general rule of thumb request this annually along with success rates, retention and high grades and keep a log of your own, some institutions require it on the application form.

    You won't find your class's exam results on any public website - can you imagine!? Identified by school, and by teacher!?

    @bob79 is quite right that you need to get this from your own schools. It's a good idea in general to retain exam results of your teaching groups/departments for this very reason.

    When they refer to 'historical Ofsted' I would assume they mean specific mentions of your area of responsibility in past Ofsted inspections. If your school was inspected & your department was highlighted as an area of strength, for example, a quote from the report saying so would be great. Otherwise, they want year-on-year exam results, generally taken from departmental results analyses each year.

    The ideal is to be able to show a steady upward trend, though this isn't always the case (especially with small groups), so be prepared to explain your data whether it looks good or not. Drilling down (girls/boys, improved performance of minority groups identified in the department action plan, etc) is always a sign that someone knows their data.

    If they've asked for this, they think it's an important part of the role and they want you to have a good understanding of it.
