Freelance Data Services

I decided to become a freelance consultant in 2008 when Oxfordshire County Council contracted me to design, construct and support a set of tracking resources (OPT) in SIMS for their Primary schools.  These resources were then subsequently made available in Integris and Arbor when many of the schools moved MIS.  These resources have received many major updates and are now known as helloData.

Since this time I have continued to provide support on the design, construction and use of tracking systems on a freelance basis.  However, much of my freelance work also involves providing consultancy on the latest national frameworks, including Ofsted and Analyse School Performance (ASP) requirements.  Whilst the focus on viewing data has been largely removed from inspections, it is still paramount that data is used in an effective manner to establish areas for improvement and monitor impact.

Following the closure of the OCC MIS support team, I went into partnership with turn IT on to continue to provide support and training on the OPT resources in SIMS and Integris.  These resources have now been transformed into helloData. Together, with highly experienced developers, we designed and developed an extensive Power BI reporting tool that provides individual, group, whole school and academy data analysis, either using our helloData assessment framework or a schools own framework.  helloData is now used by schools across the country.

Early Years Development Tool

The early years team within Oxfordshire County Council commissioned me to design a tracking tool aimed at nurseries, preschools and childminders. This is now used by settings all over the country and can be adapted to suit individual requirements.

In addition to my freelance work I am the assessment specialist and lead trainer for the assessment module for Integris. This is involves consultancy, constructing assessment resources for individual schools and MATs, as well as delivering training.  As part of this work, I was also responsible for the product management of assessment and analytics.
