More than three quarters of pupils at good or outstanding schools

December 1, 2015

More than three quarters of pupils in Wolverhampton now attend good or outstanding schools– higher than the regional average.

 

Some 76% of pupils in Wolverhampton attend local schools which are rated as "good" or "outstanding" by Ofsted, with 77% at high performing secondary schools.

 

Across the city, 76% of Wolverhampton’s schools are now judged as good or outstanding, compared to just 57% two years ago – and also above the West Midlands average of 73% of schools.

 

Councillor Claire Darke, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education, said: "I am pleased with the continuing progress that is being made to raise standards in our city's schools.

 

"The number of pupils attending good or outstanding schools in Wolverhampton has risen for the second year running, with 76% primary and 77% of secondary pupils attending good or outstanding schools.

 

“Indeed at secondary level we have moved from 108th best performing council last year to joint 81st best in 2015, according to data published this week, a very notable achievement.

 

"This reflects really positively on school leader, teachers, governors, pupils and parents, and I'd like to congratulate them on their efforts. It is also testament to the efforts of the council to support schools to improve – and to challenge poor performance where necessary.

 

"While we have seen big improvements at both primary and secondary level, there is clearly still more to do to improve standards still further and the council will continue to work closely with local schools to increase attainment levels."
