Benchmarking update

21 June 2019

The DfE’s benchmarking for school’s website has three updated features:

  1. A new feature was released in May 2019, that aims to identify aspirational schools i.e. those that have the highest progress and similar characteristics, based on KS2 and KS4 results. You can access this feature by selecting ‘Schools with the highest progress but similar characteristics (including number of pupils, expenditure, FSM).’

  2. One click reports.

  3. The multi-academy trust comparison tool now enables users to look at various levels i.e. trust, individual schools or both combined.
