All of Norfolk’s schools are expected to be good or outstanding within three years, according to a report to be presented to councillors next week.
Members of the Children’s Services Overview and Scrutiny Panel will meet on Thursday 19th September to hear details about the County Council’s plan.
Two thirds of the county’s schools are now good or better, an improvement of 5% in primary schools and 10% in secondary schools since the autumn. In June inspectors visited the county and found that its arrangements for supporting school improvement were 'ineffective’.
As part of its strategy the Council has risk assessed all of the county’s state funded schools so that schools are clear on their current standing, regardless of whether they have had a recent Ofsted inspection.
