New Performance Measures

This year the Performance Measures for Secondary Schools have changed quite radically.

Historically the benchmark has been the percentage of Year 11 students who achieve five GCSE passes at grades A*- C including English and mathematics. 

This year the reported measures are:

  • Attainment 8 (A8) The average grade achieved by all students across their eight best qualifications 
  • Progress 8 (P8) The average progress each student makes in relation to their starting point when compared to students with similar Key Stage 2 results nationally
  • Percentage  of students who achieve both English and Maths GCSEs at C+
  • Percentage of student who achieve the Ebacc:  Which is a C+ in GCSE English; GCSE mathematics with a C+ in any three of the following GCSE Science; GCSE Additional Science; GCSE French or other language; GCSE Computer Science; GCSE History or GCSE Geography.  (NB. The Lealands Curriculum is designed to give students maximum choice to support career options and, therefore, we do not currently insist that all students study history/geography and a language at GCSE.  Hence only a small percentage study the full suite of ‘Ebacc’ qualifications)
