2019/20 Q2

  • The proportion of Key Stage 2 pupils achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and maths continued to improve. Whilst the national average was not available at the time of writing the report, it has since been updated and shows that local performance is in line with the national average of 64%.
  • The proportion of care leavers in education, employment or training (EET) continued to fluctuate at around 52%, as it has done for the past two years. Whilst this was in line with the England average of 49%, performance was below the challenging target set.
  • The proportion of children attending a school judged by Ofsted to be good or better performed well against target for both primary and secondary schools.

2019/20 Q3

  • The proportion of care leavers in education, employment or training fluctuated at around 52% and increased slightly on mid-year performance whilst remaining below target. Following a successful European Social Fund bid, a post has been created which will provide the opportunity to supplement our offer to Children in Care by providing intensive support that will increase the opportunities for them to move into employment, education or training.
