School and college accountability approach: 2020 to 2022

Our approach to school and college accountability, performance tables and data reported during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Applies to England



Due to COVID-19, we have changed our approach to accountability data in the 2020 to 2021 and 2021 to 2022 academic years. These documents explain how school and college accountability will now operate.

Find out how the Regional Schools Commissioners will make decisions in the absence of educational performance data from 2020 and in the absence of tests, assessments and exam results data in 2021.
