EARLY, LIVE DATA … We call it “REAL-TIME”
National Data collections and publication dates for this year – a delay in finding out National Figures
Our LIVE National Picture graph calculates 2013 figures based on live data
We use the same live data to provide LAs and Schools with similar dashboards to Ofsted but based on LIVE, early data
