In October 2013, Department for Education announced that a new secondary school accountability system would be implemented from August 2016. It includes two new headline measures at the end of KS4: Attainment 8 and Progress 8.
Progress 8 aims to capture the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of KS4. It is a type of value added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils with the same prior attainment.
The new performance measures are designed to encourage schools to offer a broad and balanced curriculum with a focus on an academic core at key stage 4 and measuring performance across 8 qualifications.
From 2016, the headline indicator of school performance determining the floor standard will be Progress 8.

  • Progress across 8 qualifications
