More Suffolk schools than ever rated Good or Outstanding

The proportion of Suffolk schools rated as Good or Outstanding by Ofsted has hit a new high of 80% in April 2016.

This represents an improvement of six percentage points compared to just ten months ago when 74% of Suffolk schools were Good or Outstanding.

Schools in Suffolk are also improving twice as fast as schools across the country as a whole. Over the last ten months the percentage of Good or Outstanding schools nationally has increased by 3% compared to Suffolk’s 6% increase.

Suffolk County Councillor Gordon Jones, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, Education & Skills said; “Reaching 80% of our schools being Good or Outstanding represents really significant progress towards the County Council’s ambitious objective that all children in Suffolk can attend a Good or Outstanding school. This is a major element of the Raising the Bar programme that is seeking to ensure every child can achieve their full potential.”

“Whilst recognising that there is much still to do, I would like to express my thanks to all the dedicated professionals working in education who have made the improvement possible, and look forward to further progress in future”.
