Underperforming schools and deprivation: a statistical profile of schools below the floor standards in 2010
A statistical resource for individuals and organisations working with underperforming schools in the maintained mainstream sector.
Each year, maintained mainstream schools are assessed against a set of floor standards at key stages 2 and 4. The standards are based on overall attainment at the end of the key stage, and pupil progress in maths and English over the course of key stages 1 to 2 for primary schools, and key stages 2 to 4 for secondary schools.
Primary schools failing to reach all 3 thresholds were designated as below the floor standards for 2010, with the exception of special schools, schools with fewer than 11 pupils in the cohort, schools which subsequently closed, and schools with missing data on one or more measures.
This report aims to provide a statistical resource for individuals and organisations working with underperforming schools in the maintained mainstream sector, making available detailed data analysis to promote an understanding of the pupils intakes, circumstances and pupil outcomes for below floor schools.
