At GCSE, the government introduced a new data dashboard in 2016 for measuring the success of schools. This dashboard prioritises 4 measures. These 4 measures are summarised below:

Progress 8: This is a measurement of the amount of progress made by the students from entry in Year 7 to final results in Year 11. It is based on the progress made in the best 8 subjects taken by every student. Performance in English and Maths is double weighted. The national average will be zero. The government has introduced a new minimum floor standard of -0.5.  A score of +0.5 would be significantly positive.

Attainment 8: This is a measurement of the average attainment achieved by students in their best 8 subjects. Performance in English and Maths is double weighted. The score given is on a scale of 0 to 8, where a 5.0 would mean that every child in the year group had attained the equivalent of a C grade in all 8 subjects. It is therefore virtually impossible for a school to gain a score as low as a 1 or as high as an 8. For most non-selective schools the range will be between a 4.0 and a 6.0.

English and Maths (EM): The English and Maths measure has changed too. It now only shows the percentage of students who gained a C grade or better in both English and Maths. For English, for the first time, the best grade of either English Language or English Literature is the one that counts. It remains of course very important for all students to look to achieve at least a C grade in English Language and Maths in order to keep as many career routes open as possible.

EBacc: The English Baccalaureate measure remains and is promoted into the top 4 on the dashboard. This is the percentage of students who have achieved C grades or better in English, Maths, 2 Sciences, a modern foreign language and either History or Geography. As a school we have not forced students to choose all of these subjects and it is not our intention to do so in the future. However, it remains good advice that the English Baccalaureate is a mark of a strong, all-round academic education which will be of particular benefit to every young person thinking of moving on to a degree course at University.

The Department for Education school performance tables can be found here. This shows the performance of Malton School against these 4 measures.

At this time we can only compare how we have done against national data from 2015, and so the scores given below are provisional, but we think the school has performed strongly compared to most with these outcomes:

Progress 8:           +0.22 (Best Entry)         +0.15 (First Entry)

Attainment 8:      52.2 (Best Entry)              52.1 (First Entry)

Basics:                     73% (Best Entry)            70%(First Entry)

EBacc:                    22%  (Best Entry)             22% (First Entry)

At A Level, our attainment remained significantly high in 2016 with an average total points score of 915 (likely again to be one of the best in the county); an average points score per entry of 211; and with 48% of our students achieving at least two A*-B grades. Nearly all of our 18-year-olds were enabled to move on successfully to their chosen next career step.
