More of England's secondary schools are meeting baseline government targets on GCSEs, the latest league tables show.

A total of 154 state-funded schools out of about 3,200 are classed as under-performing, 61 fewer than last year.

The BBC's Reeta Chakrabarti explains how the government believes its 'best eight' grading system will deliver a fairer assessment of school performance.
