The current ‘expected progress’ measure will no longer appear in performance tables from 2016.
The system of levels that underpins this measure has been removed, and so this measure is being phased out.

However, the ‘expected progress’ measure is a good indicator to compare how the Academy has progressed from one year to the next.
