Education

Key Stage 4 Results for the academic year 20120/21 were released. This release has kept as the measure in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic as a separate dataset. For 2020/21, pupils were only assessed on the content they had been taught for each course. Schools were given flexibility to decide how to assess their pupils’ performance, for example, through mock exams, class tests, and non-exam assessment already completed. GCSE grades were then determined by teachers based on the range of evidence available and they are referred to as teacher-assessed grades, or TAGs. This is a different process to that of 2019/20 when pupils were awarded either a centre assessment grade (known as CAGs, based on what the school or college believed the pupil would most likely have achieved had exams gone ahead) or their calculated grade using a model developed by Ofqual – whichever was the higher of the two.

The changes to the way GCSE grades have been awarded over the last two years (with CAGs and TAGs replacing exams) mean 2020/21 pupil attainment data should not be directly compared to pupil attainment data from previous years for the purposes of measuring year on year changes in pupil performance.

Deprivation

Fuel Poverty Data for the year 2019/20 was last amended on the 13th of August introducing new Low-Income Low Energy Efficiency (LILEE) metric of fuel poverty that was adopted in the last year of publication.

The sub-regional estimates for 2019 are the first to be published using the LILEE metric. It should be noted these are not directly comparable with previous estimates made for sub-regional fuel poverty under the Low Income High Costs (LIHC) definition. The 2019 LILEE sub-regional fuel poverty model is based on the following seven variables, derived from public and commercial sources:

    • Tenure-owner-occupied, private rented, social rented (Experian)
    • Dwelling age – pre-1919, 1919 to 1944, 1945 to 1980, post-1980 (Experian)
    • Household composition (Experian)
    • Mosaic household classifications by postcode
    • 15 socio-economic groups as detailed in the Mosaic guide4 (Experian)
    • Dwelling type – terraced, detached, semi-detached, bungalow, flat (Experian)
    • Government office region (Experian)
    • Proportion of households with no qualifications per COA (2011 Census)

A household is considered to be fuel poor following the LILEE metric if it is living in a property with an energy efficiency rating of band D, E, F or G as determined by the most up-to-date Fuel Poverty Energy Efficiency Rating (FPEER) Methodology and its disposable income (income after housing costs (AHC) and energy needs) would be below the poverty line.

Please be reminded that fuel poverty is measured based on required energy bills rather than actual spending. This ensures that households that have low energy bills simply because they actively limit their use of energy at home, for example by not heating their home, are not overlooked.

In the economic accounts, the economy is split into institutional sectors, that is, units broadly grouped according to their role in the economy. The GVA measures the increase in the value of the economy due to the production of goods and services. It is measured at current basic prices, which include the effect of inflation, excluding taxes (less subsidies) on products. GVA plus taxes (less subsidies) on products is equivalent to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) [Source ONS: UK Regional Accounts Methodology Guide].
