34. Trend data in this section should be treated with caution. The disability/additional support need data has changed over the years, with more pupils recorded with additional support needs. This wider recording means that it is hard to differentiate between changes caused by a wider range of pupils being recorded as having an additional support need and any real changes/improvements.


36. Data on attendance is collected once every two years and only for one year. So we do not/ will not hold attendance data for 2011/12, 2013/14 etc. etc.








44. See table 8

45. Due to changes in ethnic minority definitions, it is difficult to make comparisons with previous years, and in any case the numbers of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds means that year on year fluctuations in numbers can have a huge impact on statistical rates. Therefore caution must be exercised in drawing conclusions related to progress for ethnic groups.
