All of Buckinghamshire's nurseries and special schools are rated 'good' or 'outstanding'.

That's according to the County Council, who say 90% of kids here go to a school impressing Ofsted inspectors.

Their latest look at education standards also shows many children are getting an above-national-average start to their education.

Lots of positives in this latest BCC report

The report covers everything from Ofsted ratings, through to how well children and young people are doing compared to the national picture.

Mostly, this is really positive, with Bucks above average when it comes to things like:

  • A good level of development at early years
  • A lower 'equality gap' in our schools
  • Attainment at year 1 phonics at 82%
  • 93% of pupils meeting expected standard at the end of year 2 - 1% above UK average
  • Average attainment in secondary school
  • 26.8% getting high grades (AAB) at A Level, compared to 17% nationally

Of course, there are action points going forwards for the counties 237 state-funded schools.

These include working on the 5 schools rated inadequate, peer-to-peer working between schools requiring improvement and maintaining enough 16+ provision.
