Cindy Haymes

NSAT Director for Data and Compliance

I love to be able to apply my skills (and continually develop them) within an education environment in terms of improvement and efficiencies to help shape the organisation and schools within them so that they can focus on their core aim – educating young people!  I firmly believe that every colleague who works in a school, regardless of role, contributes to pupils’ experience and plays an important part in ensuring they get the very best experience.

With 7 years leading data management and examinations I’ve led on technical SIMS knowledge, including assessment manager, census, attendance, behaviour, exams and database management and the implementation of new and innovative systems and processes. An expert in Microsoft Excel and Office Products and developing excel models I’ve also achieved the National Data Manager Award and Certificate in Training Practice

It’s also great to be able to delve into research from both education and industry to cherry pick best practice for the development of data strategy and compliance with the aim of bringing these areas to life, making information accessible, useful, valid, and relevant.

The education environment is a complex one – it’s never dull and what schools and colleagues juggle amazes me!
