Department for Education
Many Parents are keen to see how we are performing in relation to other schools.
The Department for Education (Dfe) Performance Tables provide a reliable and accessible source of comparative information on pupil attainment and progress, absence, workforce and finance. The Performance Tables include percentages of achievement to expected standards or above in reading, writing and maths and the percentage of expected progress in each subject. You can find the School Performance Tables from the DfE by clicking the link below.

KS2 Progress Measures
Department for Education calculate progress measures using a value-added measure from KS1 to KS2. This value-added measure is worked out from the progress made since KS1.
If a school has a progress score of 0 this means that on average their pupils achieved similar results at the end of KS2 (end of year 6) to pupils in other schools with similar results at the end of KS1 (end of year 2).
If a school has a positive progress score this means that on average their pupils made more progress than pupils in other schools with similar results at the end of KS1.
