Explanatory notes

Data stage
Data will be published as unvalidated, validated and final. A footnote on the dashboard is used to specify which data are contained in the PDF.

Missing data
There are three explanations for why data are missing from the dashboard:

  • Data are not available.
  • Data are zero.
  • Data have been suppressed due to small pupil numbers.

Information on the reasons behind missing data may be found later in this document or in the interactive version of the report where it can be accessed via the question mark symbol (?)

National levels
The national level for the attainment and narrowing the gap sections includes maintained state nursery, primary, middle and secondary schools (including academies), along with city technology colleges and special schools. The national level for attendance includes state nursery, primary, middle and secondary schools (including academies) and city technology colleges, but special schools are excluded.

Quintiles are used to split a dataset into five groups each representing 20% of the values contained in the dataset. The groups are not necessarily evenly split as there may be several identical scores in the dataset and these would be placed in the same quintile.

All schools
The “all schools” measure allows the user to view where the school of interest is ranked, compared with all the maintained schools in England that offer the key stage of interest. The relative position of the school can be viewed as its quintile position, for example, schools in the “middle 20%” are performing around average. For a more detailed breakdown of this measure please see the guidance document.

Similar schools
The “similar schools” measure groups schools together using their prior attainment score for the cohort. Each school has its own group, which includes the schools that are most similar to the school of interest in terms of their prior attainment score. For the Key Stage 4 cohort, their Key Stage 2 average prior attainment score is used; for the Key Stage 2 cohort, their Key Stage 1 average prior attainment score is used to group the schools. There is no similar school comparison for Key Stage 1 data.

Key Stage 2 attainment measures are presented as the percentage of pupils achieving National Curriculum Level 4 or above in English, reading, writing and mathematics. It is expected that pupils will reach at least Level 4 by the end of Key Stage 2. Reading and writing were both introduced as standalone units in 2011, thus data for 2010 do not exist. In addition to this, changes to the methodology underlying the overall English measure mean that data for 2012 are not comparable to prior years.

Expected progress
Expected progress refers to the percentage of pupils progressing through two National Curriculum levels between the end of Key Stage 1 and the end of Key Stage 2, with data presented for English and mathematics. In 2011, the measure of expected progress was changed to include teacher assessments where no appropriate test data are available. In addition, expected progress in English for 2012 is not comparable to prior years due to methodological changes to the calculation of English.

Attendance data relate to the percentage of sessions (mornings and afternoons are classified as sessions) attended by the whole school, not just the key stage. Attendance is calculated as (100% – percentage of overall absence).

Narrowing the gap
Narrowing the gap measures compare the gap between the performance of pupils in the disadvantaged pupil category and those in the other pupil category. Disadvantaged pupils are those pupils who were eligible for free school meals at any point during the last six years and children looked after (for example, in the continuous care of the local authority for at least six months). Data for 2010 are not available, as the measure did not exist, while data for 2011 have been recalculated in line with the definition. Methodological changes to the calculation of English mean that data presented for the related narrowing the gap measures of attainment and expected progress for 2012 cannot be compared with prior years.
