The strategy for Suffolk County Council's next two years of Raising the Bar will be set next week.
The draft Raising the Bar strategy 2018-20 will be considered when Suffolk County Council's cabinet meets on Tuesday, February 20.
It will discuss the strategy's plan to build on the achievements to date and to develop the ambition to create an education system for children and young people in Suffolk that is among the best in England.
The Raising the Bar 2018-20 strategy focuses on three priorities – exceptional leadership and governance across the education sector, excellence in teaching and learning and creating the best opportunities for every child and young person.
The Raising the Bar programme was first established in 2012. Now more than five years on, many more children now attend 'Good' or 'Outstanding' schools and outcomes for children and young people of all ages have improved.
