This is the number of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds achieving 5 or more A*-C or equivalent at Key Stage 4 (KS4) as a percentage of all disadvantaged pupils of at the end of KS4.
Form 2014/15, disadvantaged pupils include pupils known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in any spring, autumn, summer, alternative provision or pupil referral unit census from year 6 to year 11 or are looked after children for at least one day or are adopted from care. For previous years, they included pupils known to be eligible for FSM in any spring, autumn, summer, alternative provision or pupil referral unit census from year 6 to year 11 or are looked after children.
Data prior to 2013/14 is not directly comparable with later periods due to two major reforms 1. Professor Alison Wolf?''s Review of Vocational Education recommendations which: restrict the qualifications counted; prevent any qualification from counting as larger than one GCSE; and introduced a cap on the number of non-GCSEs included in performance measures at two per pupil. 2. An early entry policy to only count a pupil?''s first attempt at a qualification. https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/399238/SFR_02_2015-revised_GCSE_and_equivalents.pdf
Local authority, region and the total (state-funded sector) figures cover achievements in state-funded schools only. They do not include pupils recently arrived from overseas.
