Information in the text below is from the Performance Tables

“Progress 8 tells us how well students at The Ilfracombe Academy have progressed between the end of primary school (key stage 2) and the end of secondary school (key stage 4), compared to students in other schools who got similar results at the end of primary school. This is based on results in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, maths, 3 qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

The average Progress 8 score for ‘mainstream’ schools in England is 0. Mainstream schools are schools that aren’t special schools or ‘alternative provision settings’ (for example pupil referral units). Most schools score between -1 and +1. If a school scores +1 and above, it shows that students made exceptionally good progress. If the score is below -0.5, the school may come under increased scrutiny and receive additional support.”
