The Challenges MATs Face with Data

Managing Your Multi-Academy Trust Data

MAT attendance

Managing a Multi-Academy Trust is a significant challenge. When you start with one or two academies it’s the sort of thing you can achieve relatively informally and organically, but as you grow you start to encounter two structural problems:

  • Visibility It becomes harder to see the detail of what’s going on and information starts to creep into silos that require increasing manual work to connect the dots.
  • Consistency Many academies procure on an ad hoc basis, which presents challenges when trying to implement a common assessment framework. You might even find yourself with several different MIS products to support too

Both of these challenges are part of a wider strategic concern that you will want to keep on top of – your data strategy.

Having the right data readily and easily available makes your decisions more effective, it helps you actively measure the impact of policies and changes, and it helps you visibly demonstrate the effectiveness of your Trust to those that hold you accountable.
