Progress 8 and Attainment 8

From 2016, Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are the two new key measures which the Department for Education will use to judge school performance.

Progress 8 is based on pupils’ progress measured across eight subjects: English Language or Literature, Mathematics, three other English Baccalaureate subjects (sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages) and three further approved qualifications. At this point in the academic year it is not possible to accurately calculate Progress 8, due to the recent changes in the DFE point scores.

Attainment 8 is the pupils’ achievement across these eight subjects in total grade points. Figures presented below are provisional.

Progress 8
Whitburn Church of England Academy* -0.21
National Average (2016) 0

*subject to late results

Attainment 8
Whitburn Church of England Academy* 51.03
South Tyneside average 42.7 (2017)
National 44.2 (2017)

This means that the average grade achieved by pupils at Whitburn in the Progress 8 subjects was grade 5 in the reformed subjects.
