Council outlines response to Ofsted concerms

Suffolk County Council is already working to address the four areas for improvement. Key actions include:

  • The development of a four year improvement strategy which will be published later this month
  • The council will work with school leaders to ensure their role in the strategy is understood
  • A more robust stance with under performing schools
  • Developing a more robust quality assurance regime

Reorganising schools is a major strand of the county’s approach in tackling historic underperformance in schools - moving to a primary and secondary system.

The areas that have been reorganised in Suffolk, including Lowestoft, Haverhill, Forest Heath and Waveney, are already outperforming three tier areas.
