Education: Secondary / Thu 18th Oct 2018 at 06:06am

SCHOOL performance tables have been published by the government and they show a series of mixed results for Harlow schools.

There are now a range of tables and indicators that can help you know how well (or otherwise) a school is performing (academically).

There are a number of ways in which a school can be judged and this is just one aspect however that should not detract from the achievements of St Mark’s, who are top of every table below.

Progress 8

A school’s Progress 8 score is usually between -1 and +1. A score of +1 means that pupils in that school achieve one grade higher in each qualification than other similar pupils nationally. A score of -1 means they achieve one grade lower. The average Progress 8 score of all secondary schools nationally is 0.

St Mark’s: 0.47: Above Average

Burnt Mill: 0.10: Average

Stewards: -0.20: Below Average

Mark Hall: -0.44: Below Average

Passmores: -0.61: Well Below Average

The question that has to be addressed is how well a school is doing in relation to it's pupil intake and the academic progress those pupils are making within the school, given their initial starting point. These crude figures do not show that and rather do an enormous disservice to the huge efforts of the teachers and to the progress the pupils are actually making
