Education chiefs have set out plans to bring all of Norfolk’s schools up to scratch, in a week when another Lynn school was deemed failing.
Norfolk County Council has published a report vowing that all of its schools will be good or outstanding by July 2016.
The report was published as a group of MPs met with schools minister David Laws and representatives of Ofsted to discuss the state of the county’s schools.
Only 59 per cent of secondary schools in the county are good or better, compared to 73 per cent nationally. For primary schools 63 per cent are good or better compared to 79 per cent nationally.
In June, inspectors said the county council’s arrangements for supporting school improvement were “ineffective”.
The Support for School Improvement report goes before councillors on Thursday.
Eastgate Primary School, in Lynn, was put into special measures by Ofsted this week while Sedgeford Primary School was given a “requires improvement” rating.
