Support from our local church
Published: 17th March 2020
As a church school we have strong links with the local churches and our Rector, Fr Chris Ellis. It is especially important that we all pull together at the moment to take care of each other, and to support those in our community who need some extra help at this time.
Fr Chris is available to support in whatever way he can. This could be to talk, or for more practical support with shopping or collecting prescriptions.
If you would like to talk, need practical help or know someone who does, please contact Fr Chris on 01508 484174, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are able to offer help, for example staying in touch with elderly or isolated people in our community or making deliveries, please also contact Fr Chris who will try to co-ordinate the response.

Statutory Inspections of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)
As many of you will recall we had our five year Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools on 21/11/19. The Inspector looked at many aspects of school life including our vision and values as a Church of England School, how these impact on the pupils’ behaviour and attitudes towards others; the way we collaborate with our local churches and the Diocese, as well as outside agencies and the school’s interaction with the community beyond its gates into the wider world. Our academic standards were also looked at, as well as how well pupils perform in all subjects, including RE, and the progress of pupils with SEND.
I am very pleased to tell you that the school received an “Excellent” grade in all categories which we are told is quite difficult to attain. It goes without saying that I am very proud of the children and staff for all they have achieved. Thank you also to all those parents who were able to find the time to talk to the Inspector. The Report can be viewed below.

The new ‘go to’ online health resource for families in Norfolk. JustOneNorfolk.nhs.uk has been live for 3 months and has already had over 57,000 views!
At the beginning of Self Care Week, November 2018, JustOneNorfolk.nhs.uk launched into the digital community. The new NHS resource is aimed at helping children, young people and their parents in Norfolk better understand the pertinent issues relating to younger people’s health, wellbeing and care.
The platform was created by NHS Norfolk Children and Young People’s Services in partnership with the Eastern Academic Health Science Network, Best Beginnings (the Baby Buddy app creators), Norfolk County Council and families in Norfolk.
The site focuses on user experience, keeping its content interesting and entertaining through the use of interactive graphics, custom made animations and a whole host of films starring families from Norfolk. Whilst being very visual the resource is also very accessible, anyone with computer or mobile device can access the site. For users that need more flexibility, JustOneNorfolk.nhs.uk has multiple font sizes, high resolution formatting for extra magnification and also translates into 80 different languages.
All the content on the site has been created, sourced and approved by qualified NHS professionals in the NHS Norfolk Children and Young People’s Service, so families know they can rely on the advice. Topics include: Childhood Illness, Staying Safe, Child Development, Additional Needs and Healthy Lifestyles.
