Percentage entering the English Baccalaureate Click to expand

A pupil is considered to have entered for the English Baccalaureate if they entered for qualifications in English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography. The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) opens in a new window is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications. University technical colleges, studio schools and some further education colleges with key stage 4 provision provide a specialist technical and professional education. It is not appropriate to expect the same rates of EBacc entry from these types of schools and colleges. They should decide on a case-by-case basis whether their specialist curriculum is compatible with the full EBacc.

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  • NP = Not published: for example, we do not publish Progress 8 data for independent schools and independent special schools, or breakdowns by disadvantaged and other pupils for independent schools, independent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.

Pupil absence in 2016/2017

Absence data covers pupils aged 5 to 15 on 31 August 2016, and is for the full 2016/2017 academic year including the second half of the summer term. For schools that opened or closed part way through this period, the absence information will be based on a shorter period. See the absence statistics guide opens in a new window for more information on how we collect and report absence figures.

About this data Click to expand

The finance section allows you to compare the outcomes schools achieve with how they spend their money, and so ask questions about how they could use their resources more efficiently and effectively.

Where possible, figures are shown as income or spend per pupil at the school to make comparisons easier. Some schools, such as academies and free schools, publish their financial information in different ways. You can find information about the income and spending of an academy or a free school in the annual report and financial statements provided.

To compare school incomes and spending fairly, you should consider the percentage of children eligible for free school meals (FSM), the type of school and whether a school is in London or not.

Local authority and England averages
Please note the England and local authority finance figures provided are all middle (median) values, the most appropriate type of average for this data. Using medians means that the figures for each aspect of income or spending in a region may not add up to give the total spending value (which itself is a median value).
