The Sir John Brunner Foundation, a Multi-Academy Trust focused on achieving excellence in student outcomes, has found immense value in Juniper Education’s Sisra Analytics MAT Dashboard. The Trust’s CEO highlighted the dashboard’s various features and how they have streamlined decision-making processes, especially during crucial times like Results Day. Here’s how the Sisra Analytics MAT Dashboard has become an invaluable tool for the Trust’s leadership.
Real-Time Data Analysis
One of the standout features of the Sisra Analytics MAT Dashboard is the real-time data analysis it provides. The CEO noted that they had to manually extract spreadsheets from individual school databases before adopting the dashboard. Now, they can instantly see which schools or departments are performing well and which need additional support, saving considerable time and effort.
Visual representations of data make it easy for the Trust to communicate its performance. Graphs can be saved as PNGs, making sharing data insights with trustees and other stakeholders simple.
A unique feature of the dashboard is its ability to consolidate data as if all students in the trust were in a single school. This allows the Trust to gain invaluable insights into areas like the Progress 8 score at an aggregate level, aiding in effective management and decision-making.
Collaboration and Support
The dashboard doesn’t just serve the Trust’s leaders; it’s a tool for all. According to the CEO, the dashboard has been instrumental in linking up departments so best practices can be shared across the trust.
Results Day 2023: A Smooth Operation
The most recent Results Day was cited as “probably the most seamless one we’ve had” and certainly the most efficient in terms of us starting to get an understanding of what our results mean. This has enabled us to plan the next steps using the data to guide us even more quickly.
Trustees have found the dashboard especially useful. During a recent briefing, they were walked through the dashboard, finding it significantly more insightful than previously used ‘homemade versions’ of data presentations.
The Sisra MAT Dashboard has proven to be an essential tool for The Sir John Brunner Foundation. Everyone has felt the impact of this powerful platform, from its CEO to the trustees and educators on the ground. With real-time analytics and the ability to facilitate deep, purposeful collaboration, the dashboard is a cornerstone of the Trust’s continual quality enhancement strategy.
