RSA Academies commenting on league tables

Last week saw the publication of school performance tables, commonly known as league tables across the country for the first time using Progress 8 and Attainment 8 as measures.

No better time then for RSA Academies’ Chief Executive, Alison Critchley to explain to parents across the nation what it means, what the risks of the new system are and why it, overall, is a better way of understanding a school’s performance.

Alison appeared on the BBC One’s The Victoria Derbyshire Show which was broadcast on Thursday 19 January, watch from 50 mins.

And also spoke to BBC Five Live on the same day, listen from 1hr 10mins 40secs, and later on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire’s ‘Drivetime’.
