Synopsis

FFT, the Fischer Family Trust, is a UK non-profit organisation that provides services for UK-based education, such as the National Pupil Database for the Department for Education, and school analyses.

 

The software FFT Aspire is a data analysis and reporting tool for schools. It provides several dashboards showing facets of school performance, such as past attainment, progression, attendance and future performance estimates. It targets several users groups, such as teachers, subject leaders, department heads, senior school leaders, advisors, local authorities and governors.

 

The range of dashboards includes an overall school dashboard, a subject dashboard for department heads, subject leaders, and teachers, a governor dashboard (helping schools to share information with governors), a student explorer dashboard, a collaboration dashboard (to compare school performance with other schools), and a target-setting dashboard (school performance targets). Furthermore, the tool allows the creation of custom analyses and dashboards such as a three-year dashboard, a dashboard relating to children with special educational needs, a dashboard of high attainers, etc.
