Draft Coasting Schools (England) Regulations 2016 — Identifying Schools Where Pupils are not Fufilling their Potential — 12 Dec 2016 at 19:55
The majority of MPs approved a proposed definition of a "coasting" school, where pupils are not fulfilling their potential.
The motion approved by the majority of MPs, and the majority of MPs for English constituencies, was:
- That the draft Coasting Schools (England) Regulations 2016, which were laid before this House on 20 October, be approved.
Schools where pupils are not fulfilling their potential are deemed "coasting" schools. The regulations set the definition of a "coasting" school in terms of performance statistics.
The definitions are as follows:
In 2016, a primary school will be coasting if in 2014 and 2015, fewer than 85% of pupils achieved level 4 in reading, writing and mathematics and less than the national median achieved expected progress in reading, writing and mathematics and in 2016, fewer than 85% of pupils meet the new expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics and the school’s progress scores are below -2.5 in reading, below -3.5 in writing or below -2.5 in mathematics
In 2016, a secondary school will be coasting if in 2014 and 2015, fewer than 60% of pupils achieved 5 A*-C at GCSE (including English and mathematics) and less than the national median achieved expected progress in English and mathematics and in 2016, the school’s Progress 8 score is below -0.25
Once a school has fallen within the coasting definition, Regional Schools Commissioners (RSCs) acting on behalf of the Secretary of State will engage the school to consider its wider context, and decide whether additional support is needed.
