Outstanding achievement for the borough
95 per cent of Havering primary pupils are now attending a ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ school in the borough, above the national average of 90 per cent (as at 31.01.2018).
This recent increase is directly linked to James Oglethorpe Primary school and Langtons Infant both being awarded a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating.
Ofsted inspected both schools during January 2018 and recently announced their positive findings. The inspections recognised the schools many strengths and that governors, staff and parents are focused on achieving the very best for pupils and families.
Robert Benham, Cabinet Member for Children and Learning, said:
“I am very proud that since August 2015 Havering has improved the percentage of children attending an ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’ primary school by 15 per cent, compared to the national increase of five per cent.
“Our Council’s vision is to provide Havering children with consistently outstanding education that they so rightly deserve. We are very pleased with these positive inspections and will continue to improve the overall school offer in the borough.”
