Primary Progress Measures

As well as actual pupil performance in tests and exams an important Key Performance Indicator is that of progress measures that compare the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment. Any increase in attainment achieved by each pupil will be reflected in the schools progress scores. They are fairer to schools in challenging circumstances, as they recognise a school that is doing a good job with an intake with poor prior attainment.

As well as actual pupil performance in tests and exams, an important Key Performance Indicator is that of Value Added. When pupils start a school, they all have varying levels of ability and social advantage. A school's Value Added score measures how much progress they have made from the beginning to the end of their compulsory secondary education (i.e. between the end of Key Stage 2 and the end of Key Stage 4). It is a quick measurement of the effect of a school on its pupils.
