New method to mark schools

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Gcse Results -

From this year all schools and acad­e­mies will not be judged on the pro­por­tion of pupils gain­ing C grades or higher in five GCSE sub­jects in­clud­ing English and maths. In­stead, they will be mea­sured on how much progress their stu­dents make from their achieve­ment at Key Stage 2 in Year 6 to when they com­plete their ex­ams at the end of Year 11. This is known as Progress 8 and is based on stu­dents’ progress mea­sured across eight sub­jects. It is a com­par­i­son of their progress against the progress of all other stu­dents na­tion­ally. As the re­sults of all stu­dents need to be an­a­lysed to cal­cu­late this mea­sure the head­line fig­ure will not be avail­able un­til late Septem­ber.
