Primary schools across Lincolnshire have shown improvements in the latest annual Ofsted report.
The report shows that 81 per cent of primary schools and 78 per cent of secondary schools in the county are rated as good or outstanding.
This places the county top in the region for primary and fourth for secondary education.
Nationally, Lincolnshire is in the top 60 of all 150 local authorities for primary and in the top 63 for secondary and the county has made significant improvements around primary performance, in particular improving on the 66 per cent of primary schools that were good or outstanding last year.
Councillor Patricia Bradwell, executive councillor for Children's Services, said: "Whilst we are pleased with the outcomes shown here and the improvements that have been made, we are ambitious and want all our schools to be good or outstanding.
"This is a key priority for everyone working in education across the county. We know how hard our children, young people, staff and governors work, and the support that is given by parents and carers.
"We want to make sure that all our children and young people have the best possible experiences in school generally and in every lesson, in every school, in every area of the county."
