Teacher Retention research
Bradford Council is undertaking a piece of research to better understand the patterns and characteristics of teachers leaving employment in Bradford schools and would appreciate if all schools including academies and free schools provided this information
via BSO, if they have not done so already. At present schools need only provide the details for those teachers who left during the 2015/16 academic year but we will request further information on those who left your employment during 2016/17 on a termly
basis from January 2017. However, if you have already provided details of those teachers leaving your school so far this academic year there is no need to amend this information (unless it is incorrect).
Thank you for your assistance. Follow the steps below indicated to provide the information. If you require any assistance with this please contact Kate Welsh on 01274 439647.
Step 1: Go to the Home Page following logging into BSO and navigate to Retention Data
Step 2: Go to Retention Data. If you have no leavers from the 2015/16 academic year, i.e. Nil Return, click the RED button. If you did have teachers leave during the year please go to 'Add New' and provide the requested details.
