DataMeets are free regional events organised by Sisra. The aim is to provide data managers, exams officers and other support staff (as well as staff with responsibility for administering Sisra Analytics) with the opportunity to get together on a termly basis to discuss important changes, to network and to seek advice.
DataMeets are usually hosted in Sisra schools all over the country, but this term our DataMeets are all online. The meetings are chaired by a member of the Sisra consultancy team, however we keep the agendas as general as possible.
During the meetings we discuss a variety of topics and all attendees have the opportunity to add to the agenda in advance. Here are some examples of previous agenda items:
- SIMS, Progresso, Bromcom and other MIS
- DfE Policy and Statement of Intent changes/updates
- School census
- Exams and results analysis
- Target setting
- Training teachers in the use of data
- Best CPD and courses
- Interventions and pupil tracking/monitoring
- Anything of interest from attendees
Meetings normally last around 1.5 hours. Places are limited to a maximum of 3 attendees per school and are open to Sisra Analytics customers only. Once booked on you’ll receive an email with a meeting link a few days before the DataMeet. If, when trying to book, you find that this meeting is at full capacity, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your job title, school name and the name of the DataMeet that you wish to attend. We will add your name to the reserve list and get in touch if a place becomes available.
