The key figure reported for secondary school performance measures is now centred around the progress students have made.
- Progress 8 score: the new main performance measure, which compares students’ results to the achievement of those from other schools with the same Key Stage 2 SATs result.
- Attainment 8 score: based on how well students have performed in up to 8 qualifications.
- English Baccalaureate (EBacc): a suite of subjects that recognises the achievements of students who complete a broad range of academic courses. This attainment measure is currently an average point score (APS) showing students’ point scores across the 5 pillars of the EBacc (English language and literature, maths, the sciences, geography or history and a language).
