Every Suffolk school will be ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ within 18 months, under ambitious plans to rapidly improve students’ results.
Lisa Chambers, cabinet member for education and skills, said
“The recent Ofsted inspection endorsed the work we have been doing towards improving education outcomes for young people in Suffolk, through Raising the Bar,” she said.
“The report also outlined areas where more needs to be done to accelerate progress.
“We have developed a robust action plan following the inspection which will shape the next phase of Raising the Bar, making sure we focus on key areas for improvement, including having all schools in the county rated as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by 2017 and further work to make sure disadvantaged young people in achieving the very best they can.”
Andrew Cook, Ofsted’s regional director for the East of England, said the council’s plan would now be reviewed ahead of a reinspection in 2017.
