DFE (Department for Education) Performance Tables

The secondary school performance tables provide information on the achievements of students in secondary schools and how they compare with other schools in the local authority (LA) area and in England as a whole.

The tables show attainment results for students at the end of key stage – KS2–4 progress measures in English and mathematics; information showing how the performance of deprived students compares against other students in the school; and information which highlights any differences in the performance of low attaining students, high attaining students, and students performing at expected levels.

These tables can be accessed here.

Due to COVID-19 the government announced that in 2020 students would be give Centre Assessed Grades and in 2021 students would be given Teacher Assessed Grades. The government also confirmed that the accountability and performance measures for schools would not be published for the academic year 2019-20 or 2020-21. The 2018-19 performance tables are the latest information available.

In 2019 our percentage of students achieving English and maths 5+ improved from 33% in 2018 to 41% in 2019. Our attainment 8 figure improved from 42 in 2018 to 44 in 2019.

In 2019 there were 6 subject areas that demonstrated improvements in outcomes for students at the 4+ level, 9 subject areas that demonstrated improvements in outcomes for students at the 5+ level and 7 subject areas that demonstrated improvements for students at the 7+ level.

This is an ongoing journey of improvement that has continued through our outcomes in 2020 and 2021, due to developments in our curriculum and in teaching and learning.

Throughout the CAG and TAG processes we have implemented a strategic action plan using exam board assessments and mark schemes. This has happened alongside quality assurance systems to ensure consistency of approach across school. We are very proud of the outcomes of our students.
