Since 2013, the UK Department for Education (DfE) has introduced significant changes to the methodology used for calculating KS4 accountability measures with amendments occurring in each year. In 2014, ESC in Jersey calculated KS4 results for Jersey according to several different methodologies in order to explore the potential impact of UK reforms on performance measures. If GCSE results, previously published on school websites, do not match those presented below it is likely that a different methodology has been applied.

Best eight Value Added score and 95% confidence interval, by school; 2014
The purpose of Value Added (VA) measures are to look at how much progress pupils have made between the end of KS2 and the end of KS4. Best eight VA scores presented below have been calculated using UK DfE (2013) methodology.
To calculate ‘Value Added’, an estimated outcome for each pupil at the end of KS4 is compared to their actual performance in KS4 examinations. Estimated outcomes have been established by the UK DfE by looking at the actual KS4 performance of all pupils in England and working out the average KS4 points achieved by pupils nationally of similar ability at the end of KS2. These KS4 “estimated outcomes” can then be compared against what pupils actually achieve in KS4 examinations. The difference between a pupil’s actual KS4 performance and their estimated KS4 performance gives each pupil their VA score. The average VA score for all pupils in a school can then be calculated to find a school’s VA score, which helps to identify schools whose pupils make more progress or less progress than average.

*Confidence intervals provide an indication of certainty ie a 95% confidence interval
is a range of values that you can be 95% certain contains the true value.
