Suffolk schools in Hackney link-up

Complacency is to blame for poor performance in Suffolk schools, according to a report.

The study, by the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, proposes the county's schools should link up with a London borough.

The report said: "Being satisfied with existing standards is part of what allowed Suffolk to fall so far behind."

Suffolk County Council said schools would make a formal partnership with schools in Hackney.
