Due to the nature of our school, where all our students have either an ECHP or a Statement of Special Educational Needs, a negligible score for Progress 8, Attainment 8, achieving Grade 9-1 for English and Maths and the English Baccalaureate, is an expected outcome for our setting.
Progress 8 Floor standard
“The floor standard for a school is the minimum threshold for school level progress scores. It is important to note that the Government is clear that data is a starting point for a conversation with school leaders about school improvement. No school is judged on the basis solely on the basis of one year’s set of performance data. Floor standards do not apply to special schools.”(DFE)
As Schools should continue to focus on which qualifications are most suitable for individual pupils, as the grades pupils achieve will help them reach their goals for the next stage of their education or training, we at PCHS have endeavoured to offer a realistic yet challenging array of accredited routes.
