Lancashire schools are performing well

The performance of Lancashire schools is among the best in the UK, according to a recent report.

Lancashire County Council’s end of year inspection summary shows that the majority of children attend a primary or a secondary school judged to be Good or Outstanding by Ofsted.

The percentage of primary schools in Lancashire rated as Good or Outstanding is nearly 96%, above the latest national average of 95%.

Secondary schools in the county are also performing well. Over 78% are rated as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, also above the latest national average of 77%.

Lancashire’s performance is also better than the regional average, with 92% of primary schools and 72% of secondary schools achieving this rating across the North West.

The report also includes an assessment of leadership and management of each school, which is carried out by the authority. This demonstrates that nearly 96% of primary schools, and over 83% of secondary schools are performing to a really high standard, with the capacity to improve even more.

County Councillor Matthew Tomlinson, cabinet member for children, young people and schools, said: “I’m really proud of these results.

“They clearly show that our primary and secondary schools are doing well, outperforming the national average, and this is definitely something worth celebrating.

“The results have also improved slightly on last year. They are a testament to our school staff, governors, parents and of course the children themselves.

“It’s great that the overall performance of schools in Lancashire is up there with the best in the country, but we certainly won’t rest on our laurels and will strive to improve our performance even further.”
