1 Knowing Your School A series of briefing notes for school governors from the National Governors Association produced in association with partners RAISEonline for Governors of Primary Schools Briefing note 1 Second edition January 2014

6 Question 1: how does attainment and progress at my school compare to national averages and the government s floor standards? Attainment Indicators: Threshold and Average Point Scores The RAISEonline report uses four types of performance indicator. Each indicator type answers a different question about school outcomes and no single indicator in isolation gives you a complete understanding of school performance. Two performance indicators (threshold and average point score) are used to measure pupil s attainment and two are used to measure pupil s progress. These indicators measure where a pupil sits in comparison to the national standards. Threshold indicators Threshold data answers the question What proportions of pupils have reached this standard? This type of indicator forms part of the government floor standards for primary and junior schools. It is always worth noting what each pupil represents as a percentage of the schools performance. In this case each pupil is almost 2% In the Key Stage 2 example on the left 81% of the 58 pupils at KS2 attained level 4 or above in Mathematics, Reading and Writing (TA) compared with a national figure of 75%. The figures for just Mathematics or Reading are displayed alongside. Note that English has been replaced for 2013 with more detailed information about reading and writing instead. In addition and for the first time English grammar punctuation and spelling test results are included in RAISEonline. Average point score indicators Every subject level a pupil has attained are converted into a point scores which can then combined to form a measure of attainment for all outcomes for pupils in a group. This is most useful when answering the question What is the overall attainment of all pupils? In this Key Stage 1 example, attainment of all pupils in all subjects in a year group has been calculated as an average point score. 15 points represents a level 2B (mid level 2) 13 points represents a level 2C (low level 2) 17 points represents a level 2A (high level 2) Note that each school figure is compared with that year s national result, the difference is shown and a statistical test has been carried out to indicate if the schools result is below (blue) or above (green) the national result. Page 13

9 Question 2: do we have any under-performing groups of pupils, or are there wide gaps in attainment between some groups of pupils? There are a number of reports in RAISEonline which show attainment, progress and absence for different groups of pupils. Even in schools with good overall levels of attainment there can be gaps in attainment between groups of pupils. A current government priority concerns the gap between pupils considered to be deprived (in receipt of Free School Meals or Children Looked After) and their peers. Pupils deemed to be deprived are identified for the Pupil Premium Other examples of pupil groups whose attainment you may wish to look at across age 6 phonics, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 include: Boys and girls, particularly in writing Pupils whose first language is not English Minority ethnic pupils Pupils with special educational needs (SEN) At Key Stage 2, pupils of different ability levels as measured by attainment at the end of Key Stage 1 This Key Stage 2 table shows the level 4 or above attainment of 41 pupils in a school and the performance of two subgroups of these pupils. Note that the gender gap within the school is -10% and this is similar to the national gap of -7%. Girls attain more highly than boys. The deprived pupil group has a within school gap of 29%. An important point to note is that if the national gap in attainment at level 4 is to close then 63% needs to rise to 81% for the deprived pupil group. A number of Key Stage 2 RAISEonline reports are focused solely upon the performance of the pupil premium group. These reports use as the national comparator the performance of the non-deprived pupil group because this indicates the performance that will close the national gap. Page 16

12 performing extraordinarily well in challenging circumstances. Nor will it identify those schools in more advantaged circumstances which could be doing better. This is an extract from a Basic Characteristics report This school is in the highest quintile for Free School Meals, minority ethnic pupils and those whose first language is not English The school can be seen to dealing with an intake that is not typical. The level 4 or above performance in mathematics, reading and writing is indicated below. All pupil groups perform noticeably higher than national averages and particularly so for the free school meals group. This school is performing highly with a challenging intake. Question 5: how does pupil attendance compare to national averages? In RAISEonline a number of analyses are provided that compare pupils overall absence from your school with: The national average for all primary schools over a three year period The absence rates for different pupil groups This data can be viewed from the School Level Absence and Exclusions report in RAISEonline. An example is shown above. The report also shows the proportion of pupils classified as persistent absentees. These have been defined as missing at least 15% of possible sessions (half days) during the course of the academic year. In some cases this may be due to a prolonged bout of illness. However, in other cases it arises as a result of frequent, short bouts of absence or truancy. Page 19
