Educate Norfolk

Welcome to Educate Norfolk for Headteachers and CEOs. We represent Norfolk's school leaders at both primary and secondary level, working closely with a variety of parties at both a local and national level.

Each year we tackle some of the most poignant issues impacting on Headteachers and their schools. For 2017-2018 two of the biggest things we focused on were information provision and school funding. For 2018-2019 we continued to focus on information provision, school funding difficulties and SEND. For 2019-2020 we will continued to fight for effective school funding, begun developing new CPD opportunities for Senior Leaders and cross boarder links to improve opportunities for both Norfolk educators and our young people. Midway through our entire focus switched to supporting schools to close, partially open, open more widely and then hopefully into 2020-2021 into fully opening during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

To address information provision we have significantly improved, our website and newsletter and brought online our new app. We also brokered a three-year deal with The Key for School Leaders which entitles members to a substantial discount on their subscriptions.

Working with the LA we helped to shape the cluster funding reform in Norfolk and we were instrumental in helping to secure the additional £3million of funding that was allocated. Working with our local MP’s, the Worthless? Campaign and others we also ensured everyone was aware of the financially difficulties Norfolk schools were facing, the work these groups did led to the funding announcement of 3rd September 2019.

We continue to bring topical speakers to our leadership updates and annual conferences and welcome your suggestions and requests for speakers or topics covered.
