  • All Suffolk schools, early years and other education providers are judged good or outstanding.
  • Families and communities support and encourage learning outside of school, and before children start school.
  • Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are achieving at the same level as their peers.
  • Suffolk children and young people are aspirational in their future ambitions.
  • Young people are well informed and ready to enter the world of work.
  • Employers are engaging with young people in all schools and education providers.
  • There are more high quality apprenticeships and graduate internships.
  • The growth of Suffolk’s economy is accelerating as a result of the improved education system.

Suffolk has a strong reputation for its education system and is recognised as a national leader for good practice:

  • There is strong leadership and governance throughout our education system and effective school to school support.
