More children being taught in Good or Outstanding Cornish schools

Scott Mann has welcomed news that more children are being taught in Good or Outstanding schools in Cornwall. New figures from Ofsted show that 15 more schools in Cornwall have been judged Good or Outstanding in their most recent inspection, compared to 2015.

Across the South West, 138 more schools have been rated as Good or Outstanding.

Across the UK 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.

Scott Mann said:

“This is great news for Cornwall. The education reforms that the Government has introduced in the past few years have meant more and more children in the county are in Good or Outstanding schools, with latest figures showing that 233 of Cornwall’s schools are now rated Good or Outstanding.

“The Government is making sure that 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.”
