Tracking Progress and attainment - new ofsted

    In light of the article recently published on the TES stating Ofsted won't be looking at internal school data, does anyone have any great ideas about how they do (or will) track them so that we can still have some kind of oversight of it all?

    I do agree data is often totally unreliable but just never quite sure how to make it better and more effective for teachers (and far less time-consuming and arduous to do). Perhaps it's also linked with over-hauling marking policies?

    I guess it needs to be far more on trust? Still having termly Pupil Progress meetings where teachers talk about their children (this is often the most useful and you really see how well staff know their children). Would end of year assessments and data recording still be useful to compare year on year in order to predict and monitor those on track for end of key stage tests?

    Thanks in advance
