Theresa May MP welcomes the news that more children in Maidenhead are being taught in good or outstanding schools.
- Jan 11, 2017
New figures from Ofsted show that there are now 6 more schools in Maidenhead which have been judged good or outstanding in their most recent inspection compared to 2015.
Across the country 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.
“We want to build a country that works for everyone and that means providing a good school place for every child, one that caters to their individual talents, abilities and needs.
That is why it is great news that the latest figures show that 6 more schools across the Maidenhead constituency are now rated good or outstanding.
However, we know there is more to do, and that is precisely why we have set out plans to make more good school places available, to more parents, in more parts of the country, and harnessing the resources and expertise of universities, independent and faith schools.”
