We are now one week into our new partnership with North Elmham, and I am delighted to report a great deal of positivity! On the first day back the children from both schools exchanged letters expressing their hopes for a future together, and the management teams of both schools are working closely already and making many plans. On Monday both governing bodies met to discuss how to work together for the benefit of both schools, and whilst we wish them to retain separate identities, we will work to create a shared vision and ethos. We are looking at ways to support and work together for efficiency and continued improvement, and have set up various working parties to enable a joined up approach from the start. Whilst day to day you may not notice much difference, we know that the foundations we are building now will help to secure bright futures for both schools. If you have any questions about the partnership, do not hesitate to speak to any of our staff or governors.
