Missing Data?
Data missing (out of 48)0

Our unique rating system takes into account a range of different indicators to evaluate a school's performance. The system tracks achievement, pupil progress, teaching, pupil attendance and whether the school is improving.

The 2017 KS2 tests were assessing a new curriculum that was introduced in 2014. Ratings for years before 2016 were based on how the school performed on the previous curriculum so performance is not directly comparable to 2017.

Data may be missing for some indicators because it has not been published. This may be because the school is new or because it is very small so data has been suppressed to avoid identifying individual pupils. Schools do not lose points for missing data, so will still fare better in the ranking than schools that underperform on that indicator, but they cannot score as highly as schools that perform well on the indicator.
