More than nine in 10 of Newham’s schools are good or outstanding, Ofsted figures show.
Out of the 97 schools inspected in the area, 34 are rated outstanding and 54 good, as of October 31.
Ofsted, the schools regulator, inspects every new school within three years of being funded.
Inspectors judge education providers on the effectiveness of the leadership, quality of teaching and learning, personal development and welfare, and the outcomes for learners.
In Newham two schools are inadequate, the lowest rating, and seven require improvement.
If a school is rated as inadequate it will be re-inspected within 15 months, and between one and two years if it requires improvement.
Out of the 19 secondary schools inspected in the area, eight are rated outstanding, and seven are classed as good. Figures show four require improvement.
Outstanding schools are exempt from routine inspections unless there is a specific concern about performance, however Ofsted said it would like to start inspecting them.
