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.
