Footnotes

  1. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the summer exam series was cancelled in both 2020 and 2021, and alternative processes set up to award grades. The method to award grades was different in 2021 to that in 2020. The changes to the way GCSE grades have been awarded over the last two years means 2020/21 (and 2019/20) pupil attainment data should not be directly compared to pupil attainment data from previous years for the purposes of measuring year on year changes in pupil performance. More detailed information on the key stage 4 data published within this release is available in the accompanying methodology.
  2. Special educational needs (SEN) status is taken from both the school census and the alternative provision census. The key stage 4 data includes pupils for whom SEN status could not be determined. More detailed information on the SEN data published within this release is available in the accompanying methodology.
