COVID-19 DfE Updates

The Chairs of Educate Norfolk are working closely with the Local Authority

The Chairs of Educate Norfolk (Sarah Shirras, Jess Balado and Jim Adams) are meeting with Sara Tough, Chris Snudden and Phil Watson from Norfolk Children’s Services on a regular basis.

The aim is to ensure that all school leaders have clear direction and are able to act in confidence, knowing that we are all following the same advice and procedures. This will be based on direction from central government and Public Health England as well as the DfE; we wanted to ensure that all school leaders in Norfolk felt supported through what will inevitably be a challenging time, please contact us if there is anything you would like raised.
