Ofsted have criticised Suffolk County Council for not doing enough to challenge or support schools.
Ofsted recommends that:
- The Council must urgently communicate and implement its plans to improve quality
- Improve communication between the local authority and school leaders
- The council must rapidly dentify and resolve emerging problems in schools
- Implement better quality checks
Now that Suffolk County Council’s education support has been found to be ineffective, Ofsted will monitor developments and re-inspect within a year.
