Understanding the new performance measures

Attainment 8: 

Attainment 8 measures a student's average grade across eight subjects. This measure is designed to encourage schools to offer a broad, well-balanced curriculum.

The eight subjects fit into three groups:

1.    English and Maths. 

2.    English Baccalaureate (Ebacc). These are the highest scores from the sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages.

3.    Open group. Any remaining GCSEs and other approved academic, arts or vocational qualifications. 

Progress 8:

Progress 8 measures schools not just on the results that pupils attain, but on how much progress they have made since they started secondary school when compared to other students with the same starting points. This measure only applies to students who completed Key Stage 2 examinations in Year 6 of Primary School.

English and Maths:

2017 saw the introduction of the new 9-1 GCSE grading system in both English and maths. The government have stated that a Grade 4, which is roughly equivalent to a C grade is a pass and a Grade 5, which is equivalent to the top third of a B is a strong pass. 

From this year, a grade 5 will be seen as a pass and 9-1 grading will also be introduced for Ebacc subjects.
