Celebrating success is an important part of the Raising the Bar programme. Sharing best practice and highlighting excellence are essential to help inspire others and raise the bar across Suffolk.

The Raising the Bar Awards are an opportunity to reward those that work hard and strive to do their best – whether they are pupils or students, teachers or staff, settings or partners.

It is also a chance to say thank you to those making a difference in education in Suffolk, and show them that you are proud of them.

Nominations are open to all publicly funded educational establishments in Suffolk (or partners working with them): early years including childminders, nurseries and pre-schools, Local Authority maintained schools, colleges, academies, free schools and Pupil Referral Units.
