2020 Key Stage 4 (GCSE) Outcomes Data Collection


DfE Guidance on temporary changes: attendance recording for educational settings whilst closed due to the coronavirus 

We have put together key information and resources for schools to help maintain provision during the COVID-19 situation.

1. 2020 Key Stage 4 (GCSE) Outcomes Data Collection

As mentioned in the email from Data Service for Schools 19/05/2020 and the email from the Secondary Board 11/05/2020, the Local Authority has been asked by the Secondary Board to collect 2020 GCSE outcomes data from schools and colleges on Friday 21st August 2020.


On results day

Please send all examination board results files to the LA by AVCO AnyComms using the InfoMgt Out box. Files will be imported into the NCER system for analysis using Nexus and Perspective Lite.

If you have any issues using AVCO please send the data files by secure email to CS.DataManagement@eastsussex.gov.uk.

It is essential to highlight that 2020 data collected and analysed using NCER systems (Nexus and Perspective Lite) is for schools and for the primary purpose of supporting schools in their self-evaluation. 2020 data collected centrally is not to be used for accountability purposes by the LA, DfE or Ofsted, in line with current DfE guidance.

It is understood that the results information provided by schools and colleges in August will be provisional at that time as there will still be appeals waiting for final decisions.

Please note that in accordance with the DfE performance tables, we will be collecting first entry only.

Results day contact at the school

Please provide a contact person for your school that will be available on Key Stage 4 (GCSE) results day – this is likely to be your examinations officer. Please include an email address and telephone number (mobile preferred) so that we can make contact with you on results day if necessary. Please email these details to the Data Research and Information team by Friday 3rd July 2020 at the following email address CS.DataManagement@eastsussex.gov.uk
