Thanks to raising standards in schools across the borough Redbridge is now ranked fourth in a national league table produced by an independent watchdog.

The latest figures from Watchsted, which uses the latest data from Ofsted inspections to rank the performances of schools, show that 98.7 per cent of schools in the borough are rated outstanding or good.

Cllr Elaine Norman, cabinet member for children and young people, said, “Once again Redbridge has been recognised as being amongst the very best in the country when it comes to education.

“I’m delighted as this represents the hard work and dedication of so many head teachers, governors, staff, students and parents with schools being strongly supported by Redbridge Council.

“Earlier this year we were also named as the third best authority in the country for providing opportunities to disadvantaged children.

“This shows that our education system isn’t only successful but it’s also fair. It gives children a strong chance of success regardless of their background.

“We work hard to provide the highest quality of education and opportunities to all our young people with the vast majority of our schools rated Good or Outstanding by OFSTED.

“We will continue to strive going forward to give our children the best possible start in life.”
