The JCB Academy Performance Table

Please note – Progress 8 is not a valid calculation for The JCB Academy as learners do not study the Ebacc and therefore do not have 8 entries for the calculation.

Ofsted Framework 2020 – section 308 and 309

The government’s ambition for all mainstream secondary schools is for 75% of pupils nationally to be entered for the EBacc by 2021. However, this ambition specifically does not apply to university technical colleges because they provide a specialist technical and professional education.

The progress 8 accountability measure is not the most appropriate performance indicator for UTCs.
