Ofsted slams under-performing Suffolk schools

The life chances of Suffolk's children are being damaged by the local authority's failure to challenge and support its schools, according to a damning verdict from Ofsted.

The education watchdog has consistently criticised education standards in Norfolk and Suffolk and today slammed the County Council for being too slow to intervene when schools are under-performing.

Suffolk County Council today said they took onboard the criticisms, but added they are already making changes.
