The school has experienced some difficulty with e-mails today, with a scam e-mail being sent to some parents which appears to have been sent by the school. The message says that you have missed a call from school and asks you to click on a link. Please do not click on anything – this message is not from the school.
If we need to contact you about your child we will do so by text or telephone call and not by e-mail.
If you have received the e-mail and clicked on the link, the advice from our ICT support is as follows;
First step is to change your password, avoid using a variation of your old password i.e. adding numbers to the end of your old password, then check your deleted items – it appears that the malicious email has been setting rules up on the compromised email account to forward any incoming mail into the deleted items folder.
Following this please check your email rules:
Apologies for the confusion. We are taking steps to ensure that this does not happen again.

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.

Published: 8th March 2019
Have you seen JustOneNorfolk? CLICK HERE JustOneNorfolk.nhs.uk
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.
