Haringey is officially best in the class when it comes to education – with 100 per cent of its schools now rated Good or Outstanding by Ofsted.
Tiverton Primary school in Tottenham was the latest to be awarded a good rating last week, propelling Haringey to the top of an elite group of just five councils with the 100 per cent title.
That means all 86 schools in Haringey are now rated good or outstanding – a greater number of schools than in any other borough with 100 per cent.
Haringey’s schools have gone from strength to strength in recent years, with a range of improvements, including:
- Among the best progress nationally from Key Stage 2 to GCSE
- In the top quartile in London for early years children achieving a ‘good level of development,’ and more than 90 per cent of early years settings rated Good or Outstanding
- The best GCSE results in the country for looked after children in 2016.
A number of new programmes have also been set up to drive up standards, including the Haringey Education Partnership – a new schools led approach to improving and supporting the borough’s schools – and the Haringey STEM commission, which is designed to improve access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
Haringey Council Cabinet Member for Children and Families Cllr Elin Weston said: “We are hugely proud that all of our schools are now rated good or outstanding. Haringey is home to fantastic schools, with a wealth of talented teachers, staff and young people.
We are committed to ensuring all children in Haringey get the very best start in life. This high quality education right on their doorstep, with access to the best opportunities and facilities, helps shape their future and supports our children and young people to achieve their full potential.”
