Matt Warman mp welcomes news that more children in Lincolnshire are being taught in good or outstanding schools

Matt Warman, MP for Boston and Skegness, has welcomed the news that more children are being taught in good or outstanding schools. New figures from Ofsted show that 20 more schools in Lincolnshire have been judged good or outstanding in their most recent inspection compared to 2015.

Across the East Midlands, 114 more schools have been rated as good or outstanding.

Across the country the proportion of all schools judged to be good or outstanding at their most recent inspection was 89 per cent – the highest proportion ever recorded – with both the proportion of primary and secondary schools judged at these ratings continuing to rise in every region of the country. As a result almost 1.8 million more children are now in good schools compared to 2010.

But there is more to do, and that’s precisely why the Government has set out plans to make more good school places available, to more parents, in more parts of the country, and harness the resources and expertise of universities, independent and faith schools.

Matt commented, “We want to build a country that works for everyone – and that means providing a good school place for every child, and one that caters to their individual talents, abilities and needs. That’s why it’s great news that the latest figures show that 314 of schools in Lincolnshire are now rated good or outstanding. We are making sure every child can access high quality education, so that they have the opportunity to go as far as their talents will take them, regardless of their background.”
