The alternative league tables will be available this autumn to give parents a wider view of school achievement.
Last year the education sector, including NAHT and ASCL, came together to launch www.schoolperformancetables.org.uk a new and improved way to compare local schools’ performance. Unlike the DfE tables, the alternatives publish the GCSE results that pupils actually receive.
The website will be ready for schools to upload their data on the day GCSEs are released. If you haven’t already registered please do so now.
All schools that take part this year will receive a private report on their results and have first sight of our national averages for individual subjects when we publish them in the autumn.
Russell Hobby, NAHT General Secretary, said: "With the alternative performance tables, the profession has taken control of measurement and reporting. For too long, league tables have been used by government to drive school behaviour - often at short notice and without proper thought for the consequences. This project fights back. It celebrates transparency and accountability but provides stability, consistency and genuine insight."
If you haven’t already registered, do so now, so you’re ready to upload when you have your results. For more information, please contact Lauren Nicholas on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, the government has announced it is bringing forward the publication date of the DfE’s league tables. From this year, the DfE says it will publish provisional GCSE results in mid-October.
The full performance tables will still be published in January, but a provisional version will be brought forward to the autumn.
