More than 80 per cent of children in Cornwall are attending good or outstanding secondary and primary schools according to Ofsted.

The latest Ofsted report shows that 82 percent of children are attending good or outstanding secondary schools, compared to 75 per cent nationally.

Ofsted found that 80 per cent of children are attending good or outstanding primary schools, compared to 77 per cent nationally, which puts Cornwall among the top half of local authorities in the country according to Cornwall Council.

Cornwall Council’s Cabinet member for children and young people, Andrew Wallis, said: “The Council works closely with head teachers and governors at all schools to ensure that children in Cornwall are provided with the best possible quality of education.

“It is good to see that more than 80 percent of our children are attending good or outstanding schools and I would like to thank governors, head teachers and staff for their hard work and commitment.

“However, while I obviously welcome this positive report, there is no room for complacency.”

Last week Cornwall Council launched the new Cornwall Raising Aspirations and Achievement Strategy aimed at ensuring all children and young people in Cornwall are given the best possible start in life.

Mr Wallis says this provides access to the highest quality education opportunities and raises the aspirations of both the young people and their families to encourage them to achieve beyond their expected potential.

Mr Wallis said: “We will be continuing to work with schools to ensure that we see continued improvements in standards and increased rates of progress made by children in Cornwall.”

    Still doesn't alter the fact that now in the 21st century there are children leaving school unable to read or write. Something is seriously wrong with the education system in this country and we are letting down future generations if nothing is done. All the cosmetic alterations done by every successive government have done nothing to improve the situation,

    This is good news for Cornwall. However we recently heard of reports stating that British children were 27th in the world table as far as education is concerned, and that Korean, and Chinese kids were way out in front, I should like to have asked the judges of this report this question,do the 26 Countries ahead of us send their children to schools where 46 different languages are spoken, as is the case in most of our inner city schools?
