The strategy for Suffolk County Council’s next two years of “Raising the Bar” is to be set next week.

The draft Raising the Bar strategy 2018-20 will be considered when Suffolk County Council’s cabinet meets on Tuesday.

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.

Creating the best opportunities for every child.

Gordon Jones, cabinet member for Education, said: “Suffolk’s education system has come a long way and there is much to be proud of, however we are not stopping now. The next phase of Raising the Bar continues to be ambitious.”

A fire broke out at a block of flats on Saturday night next door to an Essex wine bar which sustained serious damage in a blaze on Friday.

A 57-hour weather warning for snow in Suffolk and Norfolk has said that some rural communities could be cut off.

Firefighters tacked two separate blazes in Suffolk on Saturday evening.

A 62-year-old woman reported missing to police who was believed to be in the Norfolk or Suffolk area has returned home, police have said.

A car which “dangerously” overtook a number of vehicles in Braintree was chased by police today.

The British actress Emma Chambers – known for her roles in The Vicar of Dibley and Notting Hill – has died aged 53.

Suffolk entrepreneurs are being reminded of a major networking event at which Dragons Den star Levi Roots will be offering delegates advice on how to maximise their opportunities.
