Coronavirus (COVID-19): school and college accountability 2021/22 (DfE)

 

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, most exams and assessments did not take place in the 2019/20, or 2020/21 academic years.

 

The government announced that it would not publish school level results data (also commonly referred to as school and college performance tables) in autumn 2020 or autumn 2021, and that this data would not be used to hold schools to account.

Results data from 2020/21 will not be used in school level performance measures in future years.
