Of­sted re­sults are proof that schools are on the up

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

The city has stut­tered a lit­tle in re­cent years as far as exam league ta­bles are concerned, but progress is clearly be­ing made in many other ar­eas.

In­spec­tions by the ed­u­ca­tion watchdog of­sted play an im­por­tant part in as­sess­ing the qual­ity of teach­ing and learn­ing, and re­sults this year ap­pear to be very en­cour­ag­ing.

In­spec­tors have passed “out­stand­ing” ver­dicts on an im­pres­sive list of schools, with many more judged as good and – tellingly – none deemed in­ad­e­quate.

There is work to be done to raise ed­u­ca­tional stan­dards across Peter­bor­ough, at pri­mary and sec­ondary lev­els, but it is re­as­sur­ing for par­ents to see that the ef­forts made are get­ting recog­nised.
