This site is about data. Judging the numbers. Looking for trends.
But deficits mean staff cuts and increased class sizes, surplus places lead to school closures, austerity is visible in the classroom. And all of this affects the educational outcomes of the children, the workload and quality of life of the staff, the general state of the working environment.
If we just look at the numbers, we will miss the bigger picture. So we know we are only showing part of the picture, and we ask you to complete it. Tell us your school's story. And if you're happy to let us share it, we will put it on this website.
