c. Values Added - ALPS - summary I

Using the ALPS system, we gained a ‘2’ - this is ‘outstanding’ progress. This is based on national datasets.  There is a contextual issue – it aligns within 2,800 centres and so, in 2019, ND was placed in the top 10% of ALPS centres, whereas there are 4,400 national centres.

d.  National Value Added = 0.11

o   Students overall achieved better than ‘expected’ and improved compared to 2018. 

o   The 2019 measures of 0.11 equalled c1/10 grade higher than expected outcomes.

o   This placed us within the top 22%+ of schools & colleges

o   It was identified as ‘Sig.+’ meaning significantly positive compared to national.


e. Our disadvantaged students averaged grade C. Disadvantaged students are those who attract pupil premium funding at the end of key stage 4, meaning students claiming free school meals at any point in the previous six years, students in care, and those who left care through adoption or another formal route. The performance of disadvantaged students is compared with the local authority and the England average for 'other', where other means non - disadvantaged students.  The Value added for this group was 0.15. So positive.
