Less than half the children in Derby go to 'good' or 'better' schools

The latest figures show that only 43% of primary school age children in Derby go to good or better schools and 42% of secondary school age children.

Today, HM Chief Inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw, will announce his plan of action in a keynote speech to the North of England Education Conference, including:

  • A series of targeted school inspections within a condensed one-week period in areas where the proportion of children attending a good or better school is currently well below the national average for England.
  • A new framework for Ofsted to inspect the school improvement service being provided by under-performing local authorities.
  • A good practice survey- to share and showcase some of the best examples of local authority support.
