Data & Evaluation

Edsential want to use the power of data collection and evaluation to improve young people’s experiences in the classroom and across the school environment. We firmly believe that using data is the next step to improving learning outcomes for all pupils as we are able to shift the analytical focus to what a young person is saying and action accordingly.
