Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No




That the Cabinet notes the Annual Education Standards Report 2022-23 and the key findings set out. 


Reasons for decision


Cabinet received a report on the outcomes of standards and quality of education across Hillingdon schools in 2022/23.


The Cabinet Member for Children, Families, and Education introduced the annual report. The report, intended for noting, reflected the previous academic year’s data and was thus a year behind current outcomes. It focused on attainment, progress and achievement of outcomes, assessing the local education system’s performance. The Cabinet Member also highlighted legacy issues that educational establishments continued to address post COVID-19, such as low attendance, persistent speech and communication delays in younger children, and ongoing mental health challenges across all educational settings, including early years. It was noted that Ofsted had cleared their inspection backlog and it was reported that 92% of Hillingdon schools were rated as good or outstanding.
