The worst schools in England: make sure that your child does not go there

In the official government statement, data was published that show that 365 educational institutions do not meet the government's minimum standards. This means that 260 783 pupils attend inadequate schools, this is about one in every twelfth schoolchild.

The Department of Education reported that the increase in the number of such schools happens because of technical changes in the scoring system used by state statisticians to calculate the effectiveness of the school. School principals said that the new classification system, affecting subjects such as English and mathematics, complicates the process of calculating school productivity, as it needs to be developed using a combination of old and new classification systems.

Geoff Barton, general secretary of the Association of Schools and Colleges (ASCL), said: "These changes are the main reason for the increase in the number of schools that are below the established standards. Some schools are unfairly assessed because of complex changes in the way of calculation."

The school's grade is assessed by the "Progress 8" program, which examines the progress made by the student between the end of the primary school and the end of the secondary school, as well as his results for the eight GCSE exams.
