Adam Afriyie, the MP for Windsor, has welcomed the news from Ofsted that the number of schools graded as good or outstanding in England has reached a new record high.
In Windsor and Maidenhead the number of good or outstanding schools has increased from 47 to 53, a 13% increase on last year. This increase is greater than across the South East of England, in which the number of schools graded by Ofsted as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ has increased to 2,843, an increase of 234 schools, or 9%, compared to 2015.
Across England as a whole the number of good or outstanding schools increased from 17,256 to 18,607. This amounts to 89% of all English schools – the highest proportion ever recorded.
