Govt 'takes steps' to make league tables 'clearer'

Government league tables are only published after robust checks, a Department for Education spokesman said, after it was announced that headteachers would release an alternative version.

We agree that information about school performance should be freely available to parents. That's why we have taken steps to make our league tables clearer and, in addition to our data, all schools must publish extensive information on their website - including pupil progress.

Our tables are only published after robust checks so parents know the information we are giving them is accurate.
