REVEALED: Doncaster's worst rated schools
The Free Press has combed through the Ofsted inspection reports of every school in the borough, and we can today reveal which schools have been given the lowest two ratings by the education watchdog.
Out of Doncaster's 124 schools primary, secondary and special schools - Ofsted rated 43 as requiring improvement or as being inadequate during their last inspection.
The Department of Education states a ‘good’ grade from Ofsted is the minimum requirement schools should be aiming for. And according to the most recent inspection reports data, as provided by Doncaster Council, 34.3 per cent - or just over one in three - of all Doncaster schools are currently failing to meet the minimum national standards.
