Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 results collection Summer 2018

Once again the results season is upon us. Here are the details of the 2018 results collection process.

This year we will collect results using Bradford Schools Online. Following feedback from schools about the previous collection, we have designed a new system where once a school has submitted their data, they will then be allowed to see the data submissions of other Bradford schools. Headteachers and Principals have already agreed to share this data following correspondence from Adrian Kneeshaw.

Access to the online forms is via the Results Collection Dashboard on BSO. Users require a BSO login to be able to complete the results forms. Guidance is available on how to obtain a login if you don’t already have one. Once logged in, the results collection dashboard can be found under the ‘Utilities’ section in the center of the screen.

As in previous years we would like you to return your data by 9:30am on Thursday 16 August for KS5 and Thursday 23 August for KS4. We appreciate that there is a quick turnaround for data on both results days; however, this is necessary to meet Local Authority requirements and press demands for provisional Local Authority level figures on those dates. We cannot gauge the level of achievement of children in Bradford without your support in submitting results for your school.

When returning KS4 results please ensure that you use the 2018 point scores for unreformed GCSEs (see table below). Point scores for other qualifications can be found in Annex A of the Progress 8 and Attainment 8 guidance via the Key Stage 4 link at the bottom of the page.
