  1. The following symbols have been used in this publication: (0) zero ( c ) small number suppressed to preserve confidentiality or for accountability reasons ( z ) not applicable ( ~ ) positive % less than 0.5
  2. Activity not captured: means the young person wasn’t found to have any participation in education or employment, had made no claim to out-of-work benefits and was not recorded NEET.
  3. Numbers of pupils in the Disadvantage Status breakdown have been rounded to the nearest 5 to preserve confidentiality. Values of 1 and 2 are represented by the "~" symbol.
  4. Not recorded as a sustained destination: includes pupils who did not sustain a destination from October to March but had some participation between August and July. It also includes pupils who had no participation in education or employment but had claimed out-of-work benefits or were recorded NEET by their local authority between August and July
  5. Prior attainment: achievement level at key stage 4 (level 2).
  6. Note that employment figures showed an increase between 2013/14 and 2014/15 destination years due to the introduction of the Longitudinal Educational Outcomes data, and so Year 1 employment figures between the 2012/13 and 2013/14 cohorts are not directly comparable.
  7. Disadvantage status: Given as in year 11. Disadvantaged pupils are defined as those who were eligible for free school meals at any point in the previous six years or having been looked after by their local authority. These are the pupils who would have attracted the pupil premium when in year 11. Pupils with no key stage 4 record were not known to be disadvantaged in year 11 and are included in all other pupils.
