Ofsted success for Enfield

By Marco Cillario - Fri 12 August 2016, 6:12 pm

Schools in Enfield are performing above the UK and London average, with 94% ranked as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

The north London borough is ahead of the national figure of 87% and London’s 91%.

Enfield schools are currently the 13th best performing out of 152 councils nationwide, with 50,000 of its 55,000 pupils attending a ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ school.

Of 93 schools inspected in the borough, 23 are 'outstanding' (25%), 64 'good' (69%) and six 'require improvement to be good' (6%).

Councillor Ayfer Orhan, Enfield Council's cabinet member for education, children's services and protection, stressed that schools had made huge improvements since 2012 when only 73% were in the two top Ofsted categories.

She said that the result had been achieved “at a time of great pressure” when more school places had to be created to meet demand by improving and expanding school premises.

She added: "What makes this result so great is that our schools have achieved these results when the demands of Ofsted made it harder.”
