The governmental guidance has been to not make direct comparison between schools or with data from previous years. Students included in the 2021/22 school, college and multi-academy trust (MAT) performance measures will have had uneven disruption to their learning.
There are other factors that will also make direct comparisons difficult:
- Several changes were made to exams and grading. These include advanced notice of exam topics and GCSE, AS and A level grading being based around a midpoint between 2021 and pre-pandemic outcomes.
- Changes were also made to the way school and college (and therefore also Multi Academy Trust) performance measures were calculated. Results achieved between January 2020 and August 2021 by pupils included in this year’s measures are not included in the calculations.
You can find the information available here.
For this reason we have not updated our performance tables below since the 2018-2019 last set of standardised exams (pre-covid), but instead direct you to the government website for the guidance and information for Sheppey.
We understand that each of our young people are on a journey to reach their own potential. No matter what challenges life throws their way, we are striving as an academy to do our best to support them individually in their studies whilst developing the academy to meet our vision of providing exceptional education.
