Ofsted say Suffolk County Council is not doing enough to challenge or support schools.
Sean Harford, Ofsted Regional Director for the East of England, said:
Too few pupils in Suffolk attend a good or outstanding school, and far too many attend inadequate schools. That is unacceptable.
It is disappointing to find that Suffolk County Council has been ineffective in the way it supports schools. The local authority has not tackled weaknesses in schools quickly enough. That just isn’t good enough when the prospects for the young people of the county are at stake.
– Sean Harford, Ofsted Regional Director for the East of England
In the summer of 2012 the council launched its “Raising the Bar” policy as it recognised the need to raise education achievement. But there have been no significant improvements in pupils’ attainment since that time and there is still no clear strategy for how the local authority will make improvements.
We will keep working with the council and Suffolk schools so that more get to good or better.
Education watchdog Ofsted have said Suffolk County Council is failing to challenge and support schools.
In a letter to the authority, Ofsted says its concerned pupils in Suffolk’s primary and secondary schools are performing well below national averages.
The letter is the result of an inspection of the way the local authority is working to improve education in the county’s schools.
Among the areas which Ofsted found needed improvement were it said performance at Key Stages 2 and 4 in Suffolk is well below the national average.
The council’s strategy to challenge and support schools is weak – leaving some schools languishing in mediocrity.
Officials have been tardy in addressing poor leadership in council-run schools.
More positively, Ofsted did find that local councillors and senior local authority officials are ambitious and determined to bring about improvements in Suffolk schools.
But not enough has been done to make the improvements that are needed.

Players and staff from Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club have been remembering the air disaster which ripped the heart out of their community, 40 years ago today.
18 young men from the club were killed when a Turkish Airlines flight crashed shortly after take off, about 20 miles from Paris, on 3 March, 1974.
The team had travelled to the French capital to watch a Five Nations international, and were going on to play a friendly match with a local side.
Over 300 people in total were killed in the disaster, making it the second highest number of fatalities of a single-plane crash.
The Suffolk Punch, once threatened by extinction, is showing signs of a revival.
In 1966, just nine foals were registered in the country but this year that number's expected to be nearer 40.
It's thanks in part to the work of the Suffolk Punch Trust at Hollesley near Woodbridge.
