COVID-19 statementFor 2020 the absence of external assessment information, and the Ministerial direction to award estimated grades, have led to a different pattern of attainment than we have seen in previous years. The results for 2020 should not be directly compared to those in previous years or future years. The 2020 Insight data cannot therefore be used to directly demonstrate subject, school or authority improvement compared with previous years. Full COVID-19 statement.
