MK’s ofsted results beat the national average


The number of city primary schools judged to be ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ is above the national average.

The news follows a number of successful inspections including the recent publication of Sherington School’s Ofsted result, which saw them maintain their ‘good’ rating and Wavendon Gate School’s improvement from ‘requires improvement’ to ‘good’.

Councillor Norman Miles, lead member for children and lifelong learning, said: “I’m very pleased to see that our primary schools are above the national and South East averages with regards to Ofsted inspection ratings.

“We are proud of the good quality education we provide in Milton Keynes and will continue working hard to ensure that our schools become even better.

“We want to ensure that we give every child the best opportunity in life and that starts with a good local school place.”

Councillor Peter Marland, leader of Milton Keynes Council, said: “We have ended the academic year in a really positive position; a strong set of inspection outcomes at primary school level, our school place planning beating the national average and our £160M school build programme is well on its way to providing an extra 10,000 school places by 2018.”
