School Performance Tables
The Performance Tables give information on the achievements of pupils in primary, secondary and 16-18 provision in schools and colleges, and how they compare with other schools in the Local Authority (LA) area and in England as a whole. From 2011 the scope of the tables was changed to display a wider range of key performance measures including information on finance, absence, school workforce and the most recent Ofsted reports. Detailed information and guidance on the various aspects of the tables can be found by clicking on the links in the left hand menu.
The website will be updated throughout the year as new information becomes available - details of which will always appear on the News and Announcements page.
The short video below gives an overview of the performance tables.

School Data Dashboard
The School Data Dashboard provides a snapshot of school performance at Key Stage 4. The dashboard can be used by school governors and by members of the public to check the performance of the school in which they are interested.
The School Data Dashboard complements the Ofsted school inspection report by providing an analysis of school performance over a three-year period. Data can be filtered by key stage or by topic:
- Expected progress
- Narrowing the gap between disadvantaged and other pupils
Users are asked to refer to the guidance document for additional information on the measures contained in the reports.
Parent View is an online questionnaire that parents and carers can use to give your views about this school at any time of the school year. Parent View has replaced the paper questionnaires that inspectors used to circulate at the time of a school inspection to gather parents’ views.
To complete the short questionnaire (link below) you simply need an email address and a password to register. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to choose answers to 12 short questions about the school, such as how well we deal with bullying, the quality of teaching, whether the level of homework given to your child is appropriate, and whether you would recommend the school to other parents.
Inspectors will consider parents’ views alongside other evidence when making a judgement about a school. It is also useful for us because it gives valuable information about what you think of the school and helps us to improve.
