Information about upcoming changes to Closing the Gaps reports
To reflect the government’s continued focus on disadvantaged pupils and the importance of closing gaps between their achievement and that of other pupils nationally, the Closing the Gaps section of RAISEonline will have the following changes:
- Renaming of FSM/CLA pupils
From 2014, the terminology within RAISEonline will align with Department for Education publications to better reflect these pupils’ needs. The pupil group known as FSM/CLA will be referred to as ‘disadvantaged pupils’. Pupils who are not FSM or CLA will
be described as ‘other pupils’.
- All Closing the Gaps reports will be three-year trends
There will no longer be single-year tables in the Closing the Gaps reports. Three-year trends will be provided for expected progress, value added, average point score (APS) and threshold measures.
- Greater detail in expected progress tables
From 2014, the percentage of pupils making expected progress from most prior attainment levels will be displayed within the Closing the Gaps section.
The percentage of pupils making more than expected progress will also be displayed. To reflect its importance, this table will be placed first in the Closing the Gaps section and it is the only one for which notable figures will be highlighted at Key Stage
2 and Key Stage 4.
- New shading system
Shading will be used to indicate educationally important differences in progress at Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4. Shading will only be applied to the current year’s gap between the progress of the school’s disadvantaged group and the progress of other pupils
nationally from the same starting point.
Further details on these changes will be provided with the release of the 2014 unvalidated data.
