This article gives guidance on the Disadvantaged tag used in Connect.
The disadvantaged comparison/filter option is a standard Alps comparison across the whole of the Connect platform.
Remember, we do not create a disadvantaged student benchmark, the students you tag as ‘disadvantaged’ will be treated as a group of students and their progress will be compared to all students. This is the same approach with the gender or ethnicity categories.
For post-16 providers, you can use your centre’s secure login to the DfE Key to Success website to download a list of students who will be counted as disadvantaged in the KS5 performance tables. You will need to upload a list of the student’s ULNs.
