Uneven impact of the pandemic on 2021/22 school and college performance data - DfE

Pupils included in the 2021/22 school and college performance measures will have had an uneven disruption to their learning. 

Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.

School Value Added Score - Source Fisher Family Foundation Trust (FFT)

FFT National attainment is based on data collected from schools who have submitted their results to FFT. This is a particularly useful tool as it gives us an indicative value-added score, despite our overall progress figures being difficult to compare with national outcomes due to the personalised provision we offer to pupils. Our overall attainment figures appear low compared to national average, however, when taking into account progress from starting points, pupil performance outcomes are extremely positive.
