We are three small rural Church of England Primary Academies situated in beautiful Norfolk.
The three schools:
Rudham and Weasenham Federated in 2011, prior to this we were working in Partnership. On 1st June 2016 both schools became an Academy, joining the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust, DNEAT. Being Federated and an Academy means that we are able to build on our strengths and experiences in the classroom, alongside leadership and governance to create a richer and better quality learning experience for all our children. On September 1st 2019 Brisley Primary School joined the Academy.
We are proud to be Church of England Academies, closely affiliated with the Diocese of Norwich. This provides us with a rich ethos embedded within Christian values which shapes the whole of school life.
Our curriculum is creative, well balanced and topic based. We want every child in our Federation to have a happy, safe and inspirational engagement with education. We are passionate that every child enjoys the best opportunities to widen their aspirations, develop and stretch their abilities whilst nurturing their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Our children are expected to do their best whilst taking pride in their education.
Over the academic year of 2018-19 we have revisited our Federation vision – linking it to the new SIAMS framework. The vision was created and has been shared across our Federation. Considering the rural nature of our Federation we decided to use the Parable of the Sower – using the phrase ‘The Seed is the Word of God’ from Luke: 8-11. Each academy came up with their own vision.
