We have used the range of National Curriculum levels 3-8 for this report.
What do these levels represent?
Levels 4 and below represent achievement below nationally expected standard for most 14-year-olds.
Levels 5 and 6 represent achievement at the nationally expected standards for most 14-year-olds.
Levels 7 and above represent achievement above the nationally expected standard for most 14-year-olds.
* From the start of Year 9 Science will be using the new GCSE grading structure.
