The disadvantage gap is bigger than we thought

Maths , English
Skills for Life Network

A new report shows that the gap in the percentage of disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged 16 year olds achieving a grade 4 or above in English and maths is much wider than previously estimated.

Research by FFT Education Datalab found an increasing number of pupils, both disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged, leaving mainstream schools last year for an unknown destination. In total, 24,600 disappeared from school rolls compared with 22,000 in the previous year, amid concern around “off-rolling”, whereby schools remove difficult or low-achieving pupils so that they are not included in their GCSE results.
