Welcome to the East Riding's 14-19 website. The site has been developed to support colleagues across the 14-19 arena, providing a wealth of information and resources for partners.
We are really proud of what has been achieved by the 14-19 partnerships in the East Riding over the last few years.
Learners are doing better because they are studying more appropriate courses: standards are rising in schools, FE colleges and work-based learning providers in the East Riding.
We are particularly proud of our partnership working within the East Riding, which has allowed us to achieve far more together than we could individually. We are confident we can maintain and develop our effective 14-19 Strategy Group, Action Group and five successful Local Area Partnerships in the future.
The last year has shown some great improvements in 14-19 provision. East Riding successes in 2012 include:
At Key Stage 4:
- The majority of East Riding secondary schools achieved record GCSE results this year, although a number of schools were hit by national
problems with GCSE English marking by some examination boards.
- Improved performance against all GCSE measures
- A 2.4 per cent improvement in the gold standard of five or more A* to C grades including English and mathematics to 58 per cent. The gold standard is back in line with the national average. Two thirds of East Riding Schools improved their gold standard measure this year.
- The proportion gaining five or more good passes in any subject has increased by 3 per cent to 83 per cent, above the national average. This measure will be resilient to the post-Wolf tariff as no schools results rely on high tariff BTECs.
- The average point score, one of the best ways to measure the success of every child, has increased for the seventh consecutive year and is also above the national average.
At Key Stage 5:
- The A Level average point score per student for all East Riding of Yorkshire school sixth forms improved by twelve points this year to 752.
This is equivalent to 1 in 3 students achieving one grade higher this year compared with last. This measure has improved every year for the
last five years, exceeding the national average from 2009 onwards.
- This year's results have sustained our continual improvement in the face of reduced numbers of top grades nationally.
- As a result many of the 1,600 young people in East Riding school sixth forms will be moving on to the education or employment of their choice.
National data showing the destinations of pupils from post-16 providers, published for the first time this year, shows that 69% of East Riding post-16 learners entered further or higher education - 5% more than the national figure and one of the three highest levels in the fifteen local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber area.
Particularly impressive is the high proportion of East Riding learners going onto Higher Education, 59% in 2011: 7% higher than the national average. This is the equivalent of approximately 280 more East Riding young people getting to Higher Education than would be the national average. The proportion of post-16 young people going into apprenticeships is also above the national average.
Although we have had significant success, challenges still remain which we need to overcome through effective partnership. These include:
- narrowing the achievement gap for learners with special educational needs and those who receive free school meals;
- improving the raw attainment of those learners with special educational needs and those who receive free school meals;
- improving educational progression routes for all learners and removing barriers to social and economic progression;
- improving the consistency and quality of outcomes for all learners;
- making the most of a new round of curriculum options and opportunities following the Wolf Review of vocational education.
We are however confident that we will continue to make big inroads to these challenges over the next few years through robust and successful partnerships.
