Ofsted to carry out focused school inspections in Portsmouth

26 Feb 2013

Teams of Ofsted inspectors have today begun a week of co-ordinated inspections in Portsmouth to find out why the city has a disproportionate number of under-performing schools – and whether the picture is improving.

Portsmouth is the second in a wave of focused school inspections taking place during the current term in local authority areas where the proportion of children attending a good or outstanding school is currently well below the national average.

The most recent published data shows that only 34% of secondary school children in Portsmouth attend a good or better school. For primary school children, the figure is 53%.
