SCHOOL STORIES

There is a large amount of data available already on school performance, which parents and children can use to make decisions about education. But we find when we look at it, that it only really tells part of the story.

What's missing or hidden is the explanations and context that may provide meaning to the data.

What we would like to provide is the ability for people in the community to tell their own stories using the data, and share these with the wider community.

This will help parents with additional relevant information to support any decisions related to their children’s schooling.

Parents want to understand the school story!
