Inspections

The latest Ofsted guidelines require that inspectors look at any value added measures which a school or college uses. This includes Alps. Many successful Ofsted inspections start with a phone call to Alps. We work hard to ensure that our analysis maintains high credibility with inspectors.

Yet simply receiving an Alps report is unlikely to be sufficient. Alps is most powerful during inspections when you integrate it fully into performance management. You should refer to and act upon the insights provided by your reports. You should also be prepared to show evidence of such action.

Success with Ofsted comes from using your Alps report to bring about real improvements.

We are able to support you with this in a number of ways.

• Our training can help you to make the most of your reports, allowing you to interpret the data and to see the student stories behind your results
• Our education team are only a phone call away and can advise you on the best way to present different aspects of your report
• Our data support team can help you with last minute report requests or answer questions about your data

Our case studies cover some of the specific ways Alps has helped schools and colleges to achieve Outstanding Ofsted inspections. You can also find more information in our guide for inspectors.

We are always happy to talk to you before, during or after inspections. Our experienced team can help you to make the most of your Alps data. To find out more please contact us directly.
