Progress 8

Progress 8 is a measure used by the Government to monitor a schools’ performance.  Progress 8 measures students’ attainment from Year 7 to Year 11 in 8 GCSE subjects. A positive Progress 8 score indicates that the majority of students are attaining above their expected level, a negative value indicates that the majority of students are attaining below their expected level, in these 8 GCSE subjects.

As a special GLD school, the vast majority of our students do not attain at GCSE level.  Some of our higher achieving students do take GCSEs in some or all of the following subjects:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Art
  • Music

Broadfield Specialist School’s Progress 8 measure for 2016/17 academic year was -1.46

At Broadfield Specialist School, students follow highly personalised curricula according to their individual needs.   We measure student attainment in a variety of ways, and we are proud of all our students and all they achieve.  Please contact the school if you require further information on this.
