The % of schools and academies in Central Bedfordshire rated as Good or Outstanding by OFSTED is a key measure to demonstrate the effectiveness of educational provision. Performance in June 2016 was 85%, but has improved since then and remains broadly stable between 87% and 90%.
Performance as at the end of December 2018 has remained stable at 87%. All schools inspected in the current school year have retained their ‘good’ rating and the percentage of all schools rated ‘good’ or better has improved by a percentage point this year. Advisors are working closely with all schools of concern, which includes all schools graded less than ‘good’ to improve their overall performance and therefore inspection outcomes when they are next inspected.
