Each year, maintained mainstream schools are assessed against a set of floor standards at Key Stages 2 and 4. The standards are based on overall attainment at the end of the Key Stage, and pupil progress in maths and English over the course of KS1-2 for primary schools, and KS2-4 for secondary schools. Primary schools failing to reach all three thresholds were designated as below the floor standards for 2010. This report aims to provide a statistical resource for individuals and organisations working with underperforming schools in the maintained mainstream sector, making available detailed data analysis to promote an understanding of the pupils intakes, circumstances and pupil outcomes for below floor schools.
