RICHARD BENYON MP WELCOMES THE NEWS THAT MORE CHILDREN IN WEST BERKSHIRE ARE BEING TAUGHT IN GOOD OR OUTSTANDING SCHOOLS

on .

New figures from Ofsted show that 9 more schools in West Berkshire have been judged good or outstanding in their most recent inspection compared to 2015.

In total, 13 schools in West Berkshire were rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted at their last inspection, and 57 were rated ‘Good’. None were rated ‘Inadequate’. This means 22,100 pupils in the area attend schools that are rated good or outstanding.

Across the South East,234more schools have been rated as good or outstanding.

Across the country the proportion of all schools judged to be good or outstanding at their most recent inspection was 89 per cent – the highest proportion ever recorded – with both the proportion of primary and secondary schools judged at these ratings continuing to rise in every region of the country. As a result almost 1.8 million more children are now in good schools compared to 2010.

The Government has set out plans to make more good school places available and to harness the resources and expertise of universities, independent and faith schools.

Richard said:

“It’s great news that the latest figures show that 70 schools in West Berkshire are now rated good or outstanding.

We are working to make sure every child can access high quality education, so that they have the opportunity to go as far as their talents will take them, regardless of their background.”

As someone brought up in the Cold War, Berlin has always had a fascination for me.
