National expectations of performance

Highlights from school evaluation and improvement

  • Attainment and progress: know the difference
    When it comes to measuring pupil performance, it can be easy to confuse attainment and progress. Be clear about the difference so you can effectively analyse your school’s performance data.
  • Progress measures: pupils with SEN
    All pupils, including those with special educational needs (SEN), are included in whole-school progress measures. See how these are calculated, where to find the data and what you can do to monitor pupils working below the standard of the National Curriculum.
