Comparing School Performance

The Ofsted Data Dashboard is no longer being updated and instead a new service called Compare School and College Performance has been developed. This shows the results for 2015, and also historical information. This shows Riversdale placed 19th out of 125 similar schools, and with only one similar school with the same proportion of disadvantaged pupils above Riversdale.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.  This is a Wordle of our Ofsted letter to parents.
