Sig+ helped us to move our school to good (Ofsted 2015). They have expert and detailed knowledge of the challenges schools are currently facing with assessment and accountability. Sig+ spent time listening to the school’s issues, analysing data with school leaders and reviewing our current systems so that we were able to build a clear and concise picture of improvement to present to Ofsted and governors.

During our OFSTED inspection Jamie was at the end of the phone to support us with difficult questions around data. He came to the school at short notice to help us put together a solid argument to present to the inspectors to counter the views they were putting forward. An invaluable resource.
Anthony Mitchell, Headteacher Glenfall Primary School, Cheltenham
The support we have had from Sig+ has given the whole of the SLT team skills to analyse the data and the confidence to present the data to Ofsted and DFE. Sessions were very informative, run at our pace and have ensured that we are up to date with current national thinking around assessment, and allowed us to reflect on our practice and adapt as appropriate. After our training with Sig+ we were able to analyse our data and present it in a comprehensive yet succinct form.

Jamie Pembroke has provided us with much needed clarity at a time of immense pressure and scrutiny while we are in Special Measures. He has been able to navigate us round the over-complicated data system we are currently using so that we can focus on the most important parts that will make a difference. He has coached our middle leaders so that they can now talk about the profile of their year groups confidently in preparation for our next monitoring visit. He has done that in his own unique style which is refreshing, no nonsense, doesn't try and bamboozle and focuses on the fundamental issue that can often be lost sight of - children!
Charlotte Hopkins, Headteacher, Anglesey Academy, Burton-on-Trent
The preparation provided by Jamie was extremely beneficial prior to our OFSTED inspection. His help in presenting our data contributed greatly to our Outstanding grading.
