Variables in this data set

Table showing first 5 of 24 variables
Variable nameVariable description
avg_att8Average Attainment 8 score of all pupils
avg_ebaccapsAverage EBacc APS score per pupil
characteristic_years_openThe number of academic years the school has been open

  1. Local authority (LA) maintained mainstream schools include community schools, voluntary aided schools, voluntary controlled schools and foundation schools. Schools fully or partially under local authority control that are state-funded, mainly by the Dedicated Schools Grant.
  2. Some zero percentages may represent small numbers due to rounding.
  3. z = When an observation is not applicable
  4. In 2020 and 2021, all GCSEs in England have been reformed and use the new 9 to 1 grading system (rather than A*-G). Year on year comparisons will be limited until these qualifications are consistently included from 2020 onwards. However, results for 2020 and 2021 are not comparable with earlier years due to the cancellation of exams (due to COVID-19) and the changes to the way GCSE grades were awarded.
  5. One academic year is between 12th September of one year to the 11th September the following year.
  6. Includes all converter academies that were open before 12 September of the academic year.
  7. Includes academies and LA maintained schools that were open before 12 September of the academic year and had pupils at the end of key stage 4.
  8. : = When data is unavailable for other reasons
  9. c = a cell that has been suppressed due to low number of pupils. Suppression was applied where deemed necessary for all data up to 2018/19. For 2019/20, DfE suppression policy changed. For 2020 and 2021 results where a geographical area contains only one school (for example Isles of Scilly) the data for that area has been suppressed. This is in line with the announcement that school level data would not be published using either summer 2020 or summer 2021 exam grades awarded.
