Nearly 90% of Suffolk schools are rated by OFSTED as ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’. We are committed to increasing this figure to 100%.
Suffolk is now ranked in the top half of all authorities for progress at GCSE. We will work closely with parents, teachers and school leaders to raise standards further. We will equip our young people to get highly skilled jobs. We supported the University of Suffolk’s bid for independent status. We will extend across the county our innovative MyGo youth employment centres which have already helped thousands of young people into work.

“The best thing we can do for the next generation, regardless of their background, is good education. Regardless of where you start or want to go in life, an education in a good school is the best foundation to build on.
“In Suffolk we have already significantly raised standards of education across the county, from a low point only 3 years ago, to now having nearly 90% of our schools where we want them to be”. – Chris Chambers
