One in three children in Suffolk go to a primary school that is not good enough

10 Sep 2013

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

Ofsted’s latest data from 30 June 2013, found that over 15,000 children are attending a primary school that was judged to be less than good at its last inspection. That’s 76 primary schools in the local authority area that are not providing the expected level of education for their children. This is worse than the quality of primary schools across England and is an unacceptable situation.

In Suffolk, 30 per cent of primary schools are not yet good, compared with 28 per cent in the East of England and 21 per cent nationally.
