This year the DFE has introduced new progress measures for Primary Schools. For each subject, schools have been awarded a "score". If a school has a score of zero (0) this means that pupils make progress that is in line with other pupils across the country who had similar starting points. A score above zero (0) means that pupils make better progress, below zero (0) means that pupil progress is not as strong.

Subject Progress Score National Average
Reading -2.6 0
Writing -0.6 0
Maths -2.0 0
