Accountability Measures

2016-2019 Accountability Measures

The government have reformed how schools and colleges are measured in order to set higher expectations, and to make the system fairer, more ambitious, and more transparent.

These measures are:

  • Progress
  • Attainment
  • English and maths (for students who do not have a GCSE in these subjects at A*-C)
  • Retention
  • Destinations

Please see the information below for further details on each measure and how successful SCHA VI Form are against each measure.
