These figures indicate how well a school supports all of its pupils to meet their potential. Middle prior attainers were pupils who achieved level 4. High prior attainers were pupils who did better than level 4, while low prior attainers were below level 4. Pupils without key stage 2 results have been excluded.

About this data

Abbreviations Click to expand
  • LOWCOV = Low coverage: shown for the ‘value added’ measure and coverage indicator where schools have less than 50% of pupils included in calculation of the measure
  • NA = Not applicable: figures are either not available for the year in question, or the data field is not applicable to the school or college
  • NE = No entries: the school or college did not enter any pupils or students for the qualifications covered by the measure
  • NEW = New school or college
  • NP = Not published: for example, we do not publish Progress 8 data for independent schools and independent special schools, or breakdowns by disadvantaged and other pupils for independent schools, independent special schools and non-maintained special schools
  • SP = Small percentage: the number is between 0% and 0.5%
  • SUPP = Suppressed: In certain circumstances we will suppress an establishment's data. This is usually when there are 5 or fewer pupils or students covered by the measure (10 in the case of destination measures). We avoid making these figures public to protect individual privacy. We may also suppress data on a case-by-case basis.
Further guidance Click to expand

Figures in the performance tables will only include those qualifications documented on the list of approved qualifications for the performance tables.

Guidance and supporting documentation on school performance tables:

State-funded schools (local authority maintained schools and academies) are held to account for their performance against these measures. We publish results for independent schools, but they are not accountable against these measures.
