Progress 8 is a relative measure, therefore the national average Progress 8 score for mainstream schools is very close to zero.
Maths and English were the first subjects to be put onto the new grading scale, hence the historical data available below. As more historical data becomes available for other subjects, it will be added below in future years.
A candidate who gets nine grade 4's has, technically, passed all their exams. However, the government's league tables detail percentages of pupils achieving a grade 5 or above in Englaish and Maths and in the English Baccalaureate subjects.

Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour
A crime is a deliberate act that causes physical or psychological harm, damage to or loss of property, and is against the law. Whilst not technically a crime, anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to their community or to their environment. This could be an action by someone else that leaves you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed. It also includes fear of crime or concern for public safety, public disorder or public nuisance.

Social Isolation of Adult Care Users
This is measured using the percentage of respondents to the Adult Social Care Users Survey who responded to the question "Thinking about how much contact you've had with people you like, which of the following statements best describes your social situation?" with the answer "I have as much social contact as I want with people I like".
Excess Winter Deaths
The method for calculating Excess Winter Deaths defines the winter period as December to March, and compares the number of deaths that occurred in this winter period with the average number of non-winter deaths occurring in the preceding August to November and the following April to July. An Excess Winter Deaths Index is calculated as the number of excess winter deaths divided by the average non-winter deaths and is expressed as a percentage.
Minority ethnic groups are those other than White British.
