As part of the World Class Primary Plan, the Secretary of State, Ed Balls, asked all local authorities to submit a plan to him. Amongst the key components of the plan were to outline an approach to school improvement for all schools and a specific focus on schools performing below targets or rated less than satisfactory by Ofsted.
The authority was required to ‘segment’ schools according to very specific data. Based on this criteria, Moortown Primary has been judged a good school.
Good schools are defined as schools which are graded by Ofsted as good for overall effectiveness and at least good for achievement and standards and leadership. These schools are at or above national attainment and in top two quartiles for progression.
