SANDRA BARCLAY

DATA CONSULTANT

Originally from Scotland, Sandra left her operations manager role with the Halifax when she and her family moved to Essex in 2007. With sixteen years of data management in banking behind her, Sandra put this to use when she joined a local secondary school as their Data Manager in 2010. The school became SISRA online customers in 2011, and Sandra was quickly impressed at both the efficiency and effectiveness of the system. A firm believer that accurate assessment data and challenging targets provide the basis for sound intervention, she encouraged and trained staff in the best use of Facility, Go 4 Schools and SISRA Analytics as a powerful means to maximise student and school results. Sandra was delighted to join SISRA as a Data Consultant in 2018, expanding the consultant presence in the South East of England.

“From the pre-planning to on the day, Sandra exceeded our already high expectations of what we could get out of such a session. In addition it was a pleasure to spend the time with her – her enthusiasm and work rate is phenomenal!”
Data Manager, Hertfordshire

“Sandra was a fantastic help to us – excellent communication before the sessions to help us get the most out of it. Very supportive and knowledgeable and we all thoroughly enjoyed our days training. Thank you very much.”
Assistant Headteacher, Essex

“Having spoken to some of the members of staff that attended the training, they have all said how useful the training was and that they will now be able to use SISRA Analytics more effectively. The health check that was provided before the training was very effective and allowed me to touch up our system and make the improvements, thank you. We understand that because of the way that we needed the sessions to be run it would be tight to do so in the session time, so thank you for being able to make adaptations. We are going to look at the possibility of running more in-depth sessions with certain groups of staff, so if we do, we will be in touch. Thank you again for the fantastic training consultancy.”
Data Manager, Southwark

“Sandra was brilliant. So helpful and patient. Sandra introduced things that we were not using which has been met with much enthusiasm. Thank you Sandra for your patience and a great session.”                                                                                                                                                              Data Manager, Luton

“We had a fantastic training session. Sandra explained everything really well and the session was personalised for our needs. We came away feeling very confident.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Exams & Data Analyst, West Sussex

“After 4.5 years of using a different provider to do the analysis it is a breath of fresh air to find a company that is so professional to work with. I feel excited about my role again as I feel I will be able to deliver data to SLT and HODs with ease and accuracy. I am really looking forward to using this tool – I wish we’d picked SISRA Analytics years ago!”                                                                                                                                            Data and Assessment Manager, Harrow

“Sandra had a really calm, warm and professional manner and she was very patient.  She certainly opened my eyes to much more functionality within SISRA Analytics. She is a credit to your company and I would fully recommend her to other schools.”                                      Data Manager, Lewisham
