New league tables comparing secondary schools have been released

These are the best and worst-performing primary schools in Portsmouth

The progress performance for Portsmouth’s primary schools has now been released for 2017-18.

Schools are now judged on pupil progress rather than simply raw outcomes. The scores show how much progress pupils made in reading, writing and maths between the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6) compared to pupils nationally who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 1. The scores are calculated by comparing the Key Stage 2 assessment results of pupils with the results of pupils in schools across England who started with the same assessment results at the end of Key Stage 1. Zero represents that a school’s children have on average progressed exactly in line with the national progress of children of the same ability. On a sliding scale, the more positive a score the better than average progress has been attained whilst the greater the negative value the further from average progress has been achieved. In the event of a tied score, the schools feature in the order on the Department of Education website.
