Doncaster’s best and worst schools have been revealed as official figures show 365 education centres have failed to meet the government’s minimum standards.

More than a quarter of a million children are being taught at under-performing secondary schools, official government figures have revealed.

In Doncaster, seven schools have been revealed to be under-performing while there are four that are performing above the national average.

Schools fall below the government’s performance threshold if pupils fail to make enough progress across eight subjects, with particular weight given to English and maths.

The tables now measure performance on different criteria with classroom standards ranked against new indicators called Progress 8 and Attainment 8, which are considered a better assessment of the performance of pupils of all abilities.

On the percentage of pupils who achieved grade 5 or above in the 2017 reformed English and maths GCSEs, Doncaster was below the national average of 42.6 per cent.

Reformed GCSEs are graded 1 (low) to 9 (high).

Grade 5 in the new grading is a similar level of achievement to a high grade C or low grade B in the old grading.

On the measure of Attainment 8, Doncaster scored below the national average of 46.3.

Rossington All Saints Academy was the only Doncaster school ranked “well above average” on the Progress 8 score.

Hungerhill, Outwood Academy Danum and Hall Cross were all rated above average.

At the other end of the scale, four schools were ranked well below average - Balby Carr, Sir Thomas Wharton, Trinity and Mexborough.
