TYPE

Independent (IND) school is not maintained by a local authority and does not have academy status. Governance arrangements vary, but such a school will always have a registered proprietor. It usually raises its income through charging fees to parents, but may also receive state funding through local authorities.

Voluntary-aided (VA) schools are local-authority-maintained schools and often, have a religious character. They are eligible for capital funding grants. VA schools are paid on a similar basis to other categories of school, but the governing body must usually pay at least 10% of the costs of capital work.

Free schools maintained (FSM) are funded by the government but are not run by the local authority. They have more operational control. They’re ‘all-ability’ schools, so cannot use academic selection processes like a grammar school. National curriculum optional.

ADMISSIONS POLICY (ADMPOL)

The admissions policy is that pupils are not selected (NSEL) on the basis of academic achievement or aptitude, in contrast to the selective (SEL) school system, where admission is restricted on the basis of selection criteria. Criteria may include the distance from the pupil’s home to school and whether a sibling is already at the school. Not recorded (NR).

ENGLISH BACCALAUREATE AVERAGE POINT SCORE (Ebacc APC)

EBacc qualifications in English, Maths, Sciences, a language and either History or Geography. The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications. The EBacc APS calculates a pupil’s average point scores across the 5 pillars of the English Baccalaureate, allocating points to a pupil’s best grades and dividing by 6 (the science grades count in 2 pillars, meaning a total of 6 pillars) to create an average point score per pupil. This measure is an average across the subjects (i.e. we divide the total by 6) and so is on a different scale to Attainment 8 which we calculated by awarding points score across 8 qualifications (without dividing the total).

ATTAINMENT 8 SCORE:

Schools get a score based on how well pupils have performed in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, Maths, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including Sciences, Computer Science, History, Geography and Languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

GRADE 5(+) OR ABOVE IN ENGLISH & MATHS GCSES

This indicates the percentage of pupils who achieved grade 5 or above. Reformed GCSEs are graded 1 (low) to 9 (high). Grade 5 is a similar level of achievement to a high grade C or low grade B in the old grading.

GRADE 4(+) OR ABOVE IN ENGLISH & MATHS GCSES

Grade 4 or above in the new grading is a similar level of achievement to a grade C or above in the old grading.

Note: the Dept of Education suppressed the results of Ghausia Girls High School (Lancashire) and Al-Madani Girls School (Slough), results are suppressed when there are 5 or fewer pupils. Al-Hijrah School (Birmingham) closed last August and is now The Olive School, an academy.
