PAT MCFADDEN MP COMMENTS ON OFSTED REPORT

Pat McFadden MP comments on Ofsted report showing Wolverhampton’s Primary Schools bottom of English league

“These findings are shocking and a wake up call to everyone concerned with education in the city. Education is the most powerful weapon for progress there is but when children don't get the education they deserve, opportunity is denied and life chances are lost. While some schools in the city do well and the secondary results are a bit better, to have such a low proportion of children attending good or outstanding schools at primary level should be a rallying cry for change. This is the most urgent challenge facing Wolverhampton. It is no time for excuses or evasion. We need is a shared passion and resolve right across the city to raise education standards as a top priority and embrace whatever reforms it takes to change the picture that has been set out in the Ofsted report. Young people in Wolverhampton deserve the same life chances and opportunity as anyone else and they will not get those opportunities until we raise education standards in the city.”
