Ofsted inspection results for schools in Norfolk are improving faster than the national average, and neighbouring counties, according to the latest data released by the organisation.

A total of 81pc of Norfolk schools were rated 'good' or better by the end of January 2016, an increase of 9 percentage points on the same time last year.

Across England, 84pc of schools were 'good' or better, a 2 percentage point rise compared to the end of January 2015.

In neighbouring Suffolk, 79pc of schools were at least 'good', a 4 percentage point rise on the same time in 2015, while the figure for Cambridgeshire remained at 76pc.

The biggest change in Norfolk was an increase in the number of schools rated 'good', and a corresponding fall in the numbers that the inspectors said 'require improvement'.

There was a similar, but smaller, trend in Suffolk, while the percentage of 'good' schools and 'requires improvement' schools in Cambridgeshire remained the same.

Suffolk had the highest proportion of 'inadequate' schools, at 4pc – double the figure nationally, and in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.
