'Prior attainment' is the attainment level of a pupil at the end of the previous key stage - key stage 1. This data indicates how well a school helps all of its pupils to meet their potential. Middle attainers are pupils who achieved level 2 at the end of key stage 1. High attainers achieved higher than level 2 at the end of key stage 1, while low attainers had not achieved level 2 at the end of key stage 1. Pupils without key stage 1 results are not included in these figures.

Performance of disadvantaged pupils Click to expand

'Disadvantaged pupils' are those who attract pupil premium funding, meaning pupils claiming free school meals at any point in the last six years and pupils in care, or who left care through adoption or another formal route.

  • NE = No entries: the school or college did not enter any pupils or students for the qualifications covered by the measure

Further guidance

Figures in the performance tables will only include those qualifications documented on the list of approved qualifications for the performance tables - eg they will not include unapproved international GCSEs. Schools that offer unapproved qualifications may find that their performance against the headline measure of 'Grade C or better in English and maths GCSEs' is recorded as 0%.

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.

Measures published on the 19 January 2017 reflect changes notified to the department before early November 2016. Further requests for change were assessed during the annual errata period, and the data was updated in April 2017 to reflect requests that were approved.

About these results Click to expand

These are provisional results for performance of pupils at this school at key stage 4(opens a popup) at the end of the academic year 2016/17 that finished in July 2017. These provisional results were published in October 2017. In January 2018 we will publish revised figures, which will include updates, for example due to late results, amendments following re-mark requests and pupil changes made via the schools checking exercise. The revised figures will include more detailed breakdowns than the provisional data.

Abbreviations

  • 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: Where there are 5 or fewer pupils or students covered by the measure at the school or college (10 in the case of pupil or student destinations measures), we avoid making these figures public to protect the privacy of those individuals.

Further guidance

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.

About this data Click to expand

This information comes from the school workforce census in November 2014 that covered all state funded schools in England.

Data was collected from local authority maintained nursery schools, primary schools, secondary schools, special schools as well as city technology colleges, academies (including free schools) and pupil referral units.

The census covered all teachers with a contract of 28 days or more, as well as all teaching assistants and other support staff members employed directly by the school. It did not collect data from direct grant nurseries, independent schools, non-maintained special and general hospital schools.

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).
