Footnotes

  1. The cancellation of summer 2020 GCSE exams and the new method of awarding grades has led to a set of pupil attainment statistics that are unlike previous years. Each of the pupil level attainment statistics have increased - more than would be expected in a typical year - between the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic years. This reflects the change to the way GCSE grades were awarded rather than improvements in pupil performance. As a result the 2019/20 data should not be directly compared to attainment data from previous years for the purposes of measuring changes in student performance. More detailed information on the key stage 4 data published within this release is available in the accompanying methodology document.
  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 document.
