  1. Students are potentially in scope for either the English or maths progress measures if they did not achieve a GCSE grade 9-4 by the end of KS4 in that subject.
  2. EHC plans and statements of SEN are legal documents which detail the needs of the individual student, and the assistance they are to receive.
  3. Disadvantage status is as reported at the end of key stage 4. Analysis involving disadvantage status includes students at state-funded schools and colleges only.
  4. Figures for the total number of students may not match the sum of females and males, as not all institutions recorded the gender for every student.
