That is why we decided to summarise the most important information published by Ofsted and Department of Education in one easy to read pdf download and create a top 50 league table based on the performance scores and Ofsted rankings for state primary schools in London.
To make it easy for parents to view key data and identify the most suitable school, we have summarised key statistics for each school and added Ofsted rank, Parent opinions, and link to the latest Ofsted inspection report available.
Below you can see a sample table of the information available for each school on our Top 50 league table.
For each of the 50 schools on our list, you will see a table as above, showing key data to help you easily compare schools.
The ranking is based on Ofsted rank and Key Stage 2 rank, both of these are explained below.
Parent’s ratings have been calculated based on the overall parent opinion ratings on ofsted.gov.uk. By clicking on Parent’s opinion link, you are taken to the Ofsted website where you can read the detailed parent feedback.
For each school, you will also find a link to the latest available Ofsted reports.
Of course Oftest ranks and reports are not the only measure that matters and it’s alway good idea to visit the schools and see if you like them, but it certainly is useful to narrow down your list.
According to the Telegraph, pupils at academies and free schools are less likely to make progress in maths and reading than those at state maintained primary schools, official figures show.
The statistics also show regional variations, with children in London the most likely to get a good education, while those in the Yorkshire and the Humber the least likely to have access to a good primary school.
London performed the best of any region in England this year, with 67 percent of students achieving the expected standard and 11 percent the higher standard.
Ofsted ranking explained
Grade 1: Outstanding
An outstanding school is highly effective in delivering outcomes that provide exceptionally well for all its pupils’ needs. This ensures that pupils are very well equipped for the next stage of their education, training or employment.
Grade 2: Good
A good school is effective in delivering outcomes that provide well for all its pupils’ needs. Pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their education, training or employment.
Grade 3: Requires improvement
A school that requires improvement is not yet a good school, but it is not inadequate. This school will receive a full inspection within 24 months from the date of this inspection.
Grade 4: Inadequate
A school that has serious weaknesses is inadequate overall and requires significant improvement but leadership and management are judged to be Grade 3 or better. This school will receive regular monitoring by Ofsted inspectors. A school that requires special measures is one where the school is failing to give its pupils an acceptable standard of education and the school’s leaders, managers or governors have not demonstrated that they have the capacity to secure the necessary improvement in the school. This school will receive regular monitoring by Ofsted inspectors.
Key Stage 2 Rank explained
Rankings are calculated by sorting first by the percentage of pupils who met the expected standard and then by percentage of people who achieved a higher standard.
