28 November (Part 3) - Bexley distinguishes itself in the Ofsted results…

Mark Charters…by having the fewest number of council maintained schools and academies rated Outstanding in the whole of London last year. And what was that number? A big fat zero!

The best boroughs were Southwark, Harrow and Ealing with 10, 9 and 7 outstanding schools respectively. All Labour controlled as it happens. Only Barking and Havering managed to share Bexley’s exalted position. Previous years weren’t much better, two outstanding in 2010/11, one in 2009/10, one in 2008/09.

Councillor John Fuller, Cabinet member for Education said, in a different context, “Bexley is fortunate to have many high quality schools”.
