    Off the top of my head.... I've been given a few pages out of the old Panda (now raise online/fft - I'm out it it now) and told to come up with three priorities for the coming year... I chose HA (not performing well, SEN, look at how to allocate LSA and others, and PP, suggested marking them on seating plans simply to make them "visible".
    I have also been given a database of blind pupil data (Just my subject AND their performances in other subjects) and asked to pick out intervention groups, AND give a report on how the year group were doing.... I began to hope half way through it wasn't CURRENT year 11 - it wasn't great!
    Other tasks I've had is to respond to a "written parental complaint" by writing what I would send in an Email. (Parent implying poor teacher/kid losing motivation.
    I've also been asked to allocate a year group into sets, choose teachers (little background given) and decide to put the LSAs in which groups. That looked at if I knew the target was 60 percent grade B -- I had to make sure ALL of the relevant kids were in the higher tier etc... Interestingly I put a class of 24 in top set as the A*A target was 25 percent... so I reduced that to focus and did other little things I'd hoped they liked!

    To name a few:

    Progress 8 Score - what does it tell you?.
    Attainment 8 Score - Good or not?
    Latest Ofsted - Weaknesses/Action Pts?
    Retainment - issues?
    Teacher performance per group - action?
    Strengths - eg boys vs girls, eal, sen, pupil premium, exclusions?
    Weaknesses - what are they?
    Producing Action Plan based on latest data
    KS3 - How measured?
    Flight paths ?
    Estimated grades vs Actual Grades- why different?
