Accountability Measures

16-19 Accountability Measures

The government have reformed how schools and colleges are measured in order to set higher expectations, and to make the system fairer, more ambitious, and more transparent.

These measures are:

  • Progress
  • Attainment
  • English and maths (for students who do not have a GCSE in these subjects at A*-C)
  • Retention
  • Destinations

Please see the information below for further details on each measure and how successful SCHA VI Form are against each measure.

Progress

This measure uses value added progress to show how well students have progressed when compared with students with the same prior attainment.

The value added progress for the SCHA 2017 cohort of students studying A levels was +0.28, and for those students studying vocational courses it was +0.77. This means that on average each students studying A level subjects achieved just under a grade better than expected across three subjects. For the BTEC level 3 subjects students achieved over two grades better than expected across three subjects.

Attainment

This measure shows the average grade that students attain across the academy in their A level and BTEC level 3 studies.

The average grade for the 2017 cohort studying and completing their A levels was B-. When the five students who moved onto alternative career/training pathways during the two year study period were factored in, the average grade was C+.

For those students studying the vocational BTEC courses, the average grade was Dist*. This was unaffected by those moving to alternative career/training pathways.

English and maths

This measure shows the progress of students in English and maths where they did not achieve at least a grade C at GCSE by the end of key stage 4.

The cohort of students completing their studies in 2017 that started VI Form without a grade C or above in English Language numbered eight students; all students achieved a C grade by the end of the programme of study.

The cohort of students completing their studies in 2017 that started VI Form without a grade C or above in Maths numbered four students; none achieved a C grade by the end of the programme of study.

Retention

The data for this measure will be validated in March 2018, for the academy’s calculations please see below.

This measure shows the proportion of students who are retained to the end of their main course of study within their study programme at a provider.

For the 2017 Year 13 cohort, 96% of students were retained on A level courses and 97% of students were retained on the BTEC level 3 vocational courses. The pass rate was 100%.

For the 2017 Year 12 cohort, 88% of students progressed from Year 12 into Year 13. All of the 12 students that left the VI Form during or at the end of year 12 have moved onto positive destinations.

Destinations

Successful schools and colleges support and prepare their students for future education, training and employment.
