The department has no plans to carry out a formal review of the use of school performance tables. The department continually monitors the way the educational performance data we publish is used by parents, schools and those working with schools, such as academy trusts and local authorities.

On 20 March 2020, the government announced that it will not publish any school or college level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020. This follows the government’s decision to cancel the summer 2020 exam series, including GCSEs, A-levels, and other qualifications, and all primary assessments, as we fight to stop the spread of coronavirus.
