Performance Data 2019

Progress 8 score – Low coverage.

This score shows how much progress pupils at this school made between the end of key stage 2 and the end of key stage 4, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 2. At Cranbrook School fewer than 50% of our students arrive with a KS2 score and so this figure is not recorded in Government performance tables.  Please note that the DFE also point out that “Some schools start educating pupils partway through the 5-year period covered by Progress 8, which should be taken into account when comparing their results with schools that start at Key Stage 3”.  As, currently , those students in the GCSE exam years only joined Cranbrook School in year 9, even if they have a KS2 score they cannot be compared equally with other schools Progress 8 results.

Attainment 8 score – 65.7 points.

Schools get a score based on how well pupils have performed in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

% pupils who’ve achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in English and maths at the end of KS4 – 84.7%

% pupils entering for the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) – 98.7%

The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications.

EBacc average point score (EBacc APS) – 6.52 points

The EBacc APS calculates a pupil’s average point scores across the 5 pillars of the English Baccalaureate, allocating points to a pupil’s best grades and dividing by 6 (the science grades count in 2 pillars, meaning a total of 6 pillars) to create an average point score per pupil.

% students staying in education or employment after key stage 4 (destinations) – 95%.   The data published in October 2018 is for pupils who finished year 11 in 2016, which is the most recent data available.  Data for 2017 and 2018 is not yet available from the DfE.

For further information and clarification please do look at the performance data presented on the Department of Education’s School Performance Tables.
