The OFSTED framework and the Department for Education have introduced new performance table measures. There is now a great emphasis on progress rather than attainment only. The key headline measure is now Progress 8, replacing the previous attainment measure of 5 A*-C including English and mathematics.
We at The Hart School firmly believe in measuring success by the progress every single student makes across all of their subjects. This is a measure of the value we add during the students’ educational journey with us, regardless of their ability.
Progress 8 measures the difference between what a student achieves in their subjects and what national benchmarks require them to achieve. A score of zero indicates expected progress has been made. A score below -0.5 is regarded as below the national floor standard.
