Faith and grammar schools plummet in ‘fairer’ tables

The league table performance of grammar and faith schools drops substantially once “fairer” measures of pupil background are added to progress measures, a new study demonstrates.

The report published today claims that the Department for Education’s current performance tables, based on Progress 8 scores, “punish and reward the wrong schools”.

Researchers have instead created a new Fair Secondary School Index which factors in pupils’ ethnicity, deprivation and special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to give each school an adjusted progress score.
