Two-thirds of Birmingham City Council Education targets not met

A report released by Birmingham City Council has revealed that 6 of the 9 performance indicators set by the council were not met over the last academic year.

Ofsted results, Early Years development, Key Stage 2 attainment, exclusions, Special Education Needs and persistent absences were failed targets.

The number of persistent absentees has dropped since 2009/10, however Birmingham has remained above national average. Birmingham City Council defines persistent absences as more than 10% of educational sessions missed, and aims to be within national average for the next academic year.
At the beginning of the 2016/17 academic year, 33 schools required improvement. This number has dropped to 25.
However, only 80% of schools were rated Good or Outstanding by Ofsted, failing to reach the 90% target.
