Schools across North Yorkshire are performing better than the national average

  • 87% of primary schools in North Yorkshire have been judged as good or outstanding
  • 81% of secondary schools received the same rating

North Yorkshire's Primary and Secondary schools are outperforming most areas in the country.

The figures have come from Ofsted's Education, Children’s Services and Skills Annual Report 2017/18.

87% of primary schools in North Yorkshire were judged as good or outstanding - higher than the average for England which was 82%.

Meanwhile, 81% of secondary schools achieved that same rating - good or outstanding - compared to 75% in England.

Achievement among pupils in North Yorkshire was below the national average.

At Key Stage 2 – pupils aged seven to 11 – 62% of pupils reached the expected standard compared to 64% in England.

And at Key Stage 4 pupils scored 'below' average for their progress and lower than average for attainment.

Cathy Kirby, Ofsted Yorkshire and Humber Director said:

"I am pleased to be able to report that early years provision in the region continues to give our youngest children the best start in life, with 94% of childminders and 95% of nurseries and pre-schools rated good or outstanding.

"Unfortunately, school age children do not fare as well. Inspection outcomes remain stubbornly below the national average at both primary and secondary level. There remains wide variation within the region at primary level.

"At secondary school level, the percentage of schools that are good or better dropped to 68%, which is well below national average..."

Cathy added:

"As I have said before, I continue to be concerned about exclusions in the region. Yorkshire and Humber have the highest rate of exclusions anywhere in England."
