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  • NP = Not published: for example, we do not publish Progress 8 data for independent schools and independent special schools, or breakdowns by disadvantaged and other pupils for independent schools, independent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