What the Ofsted report means for London's schools

London schools are doing better than those elsewhere. 

An Ofsted report has found 9 in 10 of schools in the capital were judged good or outstanding.  The national average is 86 per cent. 

Speaking at the launch of the annual report in Westminster Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman said poorer children still fell behind their more affluent peers when it came to reading, for no good reason. 

She also raised concerns about knife crime after Ofsted carried out a study on the problem in London this year.Today's report highlights that London schools are doing better than those elsewhere.

It found 92 per cent of all schools in the capital were judged good or outstanding at their latest inspection, compared with 86 per cent nationally.
