Hillingdon Times: Boost for Hillingdon schools with positive Ofsted reports Boost for Hillingdon schools with positive Ofsted reports

MOST of Hillingdon's children attend a school judged by Ofsted to be good or outstanding, figures show.

Ofsted inspections from 2013 reveal that 80% of Hillingdon primary school and 78% of secondary school pupils attend a school judged above a ‘satisfactory’ rating.

The borough’s school results also improved for the ninth consecutive year, either equalling or surpassing the national average.

In particular, last year 71% of Key Stage One children in the borough received the required standard in a national phonics test, up from 57% the previous year.

Similarly, 86% of GCSE students obtained five or more GCSEs above grade C in all subjects, which is above the national London level of 81%.

Adult learning services have also improved, with students’ success rates rising to 89%.

Councillor David Simmonds, Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services said: “Schools run their own affairs and huge credit is due to heads and governors for these achievements.”

There were, however, a small number of Hillingdon institutions which Ofsted observed ‘required improvement’. Cllr Simmonds said: "These schools are receiving a bespoke support package and we are pleased to report that return visits by Ofsted indicate that progress is being made.”
