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. Evidence shows that the progress and achievement of disadvantaged pupils is normally lower than that of 'other' pupils.

Performance by prior attainment Click to expand

'Prior attainment' is the attainment level of a pupil at the end of key stage 2 (end of the primary phase of education). This data indicates how well a school supports all of its pupils to meet their potential. Middle attainers were pupils who achieved level 4. High attainers were pupils who did better than level 4, while low attainers were below level 4. Pupils without key stage 2 results have been excluded.

Acronyms & abbreviations

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  • NP = Not published: for example we do not publish Progress 8 data for independent schools and independent special schools, or breakdowns by disadvantaged and other pupils for independent schools, independent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

Absence in 2015 to 2016

Absence data covers pupils aged 5 to 15 on 31 August 2015, and is for the full 2015 to 2016 academic year including the second half of the summer term. See the absence statistics guide for more information on how we collect and report absence figures.

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.

Finance 2015 to 2016

This school or college does not provide financial data directly comparable with maintained schools
