Newall Green High School Performance Data
All schools are now subject to different types of performance data.
The new measures which are published now include:
- Progress 8
- Attainment 8
- The percentage of students entered for and attaining the English Baccalaureate
- The percentage of student attaining A-C grades in English and Maths GCSE
Progress 8 is a new measure of the progress children make between the end of primary school and the end of secondary school. It is based on students’’ progress in eight qualifications. These are:
- Science and two other English Baccalaureate subjects (computer science, geography, history or languages)
- Three further subjects which can be from the range of EBACC subjects, or can be any other GCSE or approved, high-value arts, academic, or vocational qualification.
- English and maths, at least one science, and students’ five highest scores from a range of other qualifications, including GCSEs and approved non-GCSEs. English and maths are given double weighting to reflect their importance.
Schools are expected to achieve a Progress 8 score above -0.5, which is the minimum standard expected by the Government.
We have improved by 0.2, which means our students have improved by one-fifth of a grade across the eight subjects.
This is the students’ average achievement across the eight subjects used in the Progress 8 calculation.
Our students are now achieving approximately a grade higher in each of the eight subjects compared to last year.
The English Baccalaureate, or EBACC, is a measure of how many pupils achieve a GCSE grade C or above in five core academic subjects: English, maths, history or geography, a science and a language. In addition, students must take both English language and literature, although they only need a grade A*-C in one of them.
Percentage of students achieving grade C+ in English and Maths
Schools are expected to achieve above 40%, this is the minimum standard expected by the Government.
