Department for Education School Performance Tables

The performance tables continue to sit at the heart of the accountability framework. They focus the debate on standards and strengthen the accountability of schools and colleges, providing a reliable and accessible source of comparative information on pupil attainment and progress. The performance tables present this information alongside wider contextual data including Ofsted, absence, workforce and finance data, presenting users with a wider understanding of the setting in which schools are operating.

The Government announced that it will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020.

This update published clarifies what this means for the way school and college accountability will operate for 2019/20.
