Welcome to NEXUS, a comprehensive online education data portal and school improvement tool for local authorities, provided as part of membership to NCER.
NEXUS can be used by multiple stakeholders within local authorities including senior leaders, school improvement and performance data teams to provide high quality data services and robust evidence of school improvement and quality assurance functions, including preparation for Ofsted inspections. NCER systems span the Early Years Foundation Stage through to Post 16 provision.
Membership to NCER also provides all local authorities in England with Perspective Lite, a school data portal and communication tool containing innovative functionality, which links securely to NEXUS and can be rolled out to all schools as part of a traded service package. NCER members also benefit from the ability to share information and good practice with other local authorities around the country via our frequently used Forum.
NCER are a longstanding, non-profit making, Community Interest Company providing first class educational performance data systems. We are owned by, and act on behalf of, all local authorities in England enabling us to operate on a truly national scale, delivering both excellent value for money, economies of scale, and a robust and effective national system.
