KEY STAGE 4 PERFORMANCE MEASURES EXPLAINED
All secondary schools are judged on the amount of progress that their students make. This is known as the ‘Progress 8’ measure. This is the main headline measure by which schools are ranked and is published in the secondary school performance tables.
WHAT DOES PROGRESS 8 MEASURE?
Progress 8 calculates how much progress students make between their results in year 6 and their results in year 11 (GCSEs). It is a ‘value-added’ measure, meaning students’ results are compared to the achievements of other students across the country with similar year 6 results.
A school’s Progress 8 score is an average of the students’ individual scores in a selected range of 8 qualifications that includes best English, maths, 3 Ebacc subjects (science, languages, humanities) and 3 Open (any other) subjects. It shows whether, as a group, students in the school made above or below average progress compared to similar students in other schools.
A value of 0 is the national average and therefore a figure above 0 is above average. A negative value would be below the national average.
Attainment 8 is a measure of a student’s average grade across a set suite of eight subjects.
GRADE 5 OR ABOVE IN ENGLISH AND MATHS GCSES
This tells you the percentage of students who achieved grade 5 or above in GCSEs. GCSEs are graded 1 (low) to 9 (high). Grade 5 in the new grading is a similar level of achievement to a high grade C or low grade B in the old grading.
PERCENTAGE ACHIEVING 5 OR MORE STANDARD PASSES INCLUDING ENGLISH AND MATHS GCSES
This tells you the percentage of students who achieved grade 4 or above in at least 5 GCSEs including English and Maths.
ENTERING ENGLISH BACCALAUREATE
A student 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 is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications.
STAYING IN EDUCATION OR ENTERING EMPLOYMENT
This shows the number of students who either stayed in education or went into employment after finishing key stage 4 (after year 11, usually aged 16). This is for students who finished year 11 two years before the year of publication.
