This year, we’ll be joined by two fantastic guest speakers who will be sharing their thoughts, knowledge and experience on some of education’s hot topics:

Apples and pears – good for a fruit salad but not school performance

by Duncan Baldwin, Deputy Director, ASCL

Too often schools, Ofsted and the DfE compare apples with pears; they make comparisons in performance measures and between schools which simply aren’t valid. By comparing how schools have performed at individual subject level, we can make genuine, like-for-like comparisons and recover the right focus for school accountability – how did pupils do in each of their subjects?

Within the space of one year, data collaboration between schools has moved from experiment to expectation. In this talk Duncan will explain why and how we can now break new ground in evaluating school performance, and finally compare apples with apples.

Duncan will be presenting on:

– Wed 23rd Jan at 2:30pm

– Thurs 24th Jan at 11am & 2:45pm

– Fri 25th Jan at 10:30am

Do your staff think ‘privacy first’?

by Claire Ashton, Sector Marketing Manager, IT Governance Ltd

How to reduce the risk of data breaches by engaging all staff in a culture of privacy.

Across all sectors and sizes of organisations, human error is the most likely cause of a breach in data security and breaches are on the increase across the education sector. With data breach recording and, in some cases, reporting to the ICO now a requirement of the GDPR, Claire Ashton from IT Governance will explore how to reduce the risks staff pose to your school’s data security by thinking ‘privacy first’.

Claire will be presenting on:

– Thurs 24th Jan at 12:30pm
