What We Do

Educate Norfolk represents and supports school leadership and leadership development across all state funded schools in Norfolk. As an association we seek to represent the views of Norfolk school leaders which enable strategic decisions to be taken that are in the best interest of all Norfolk's young people.


We represent Headteachers and more widely 'education' on a number of boards and committees across Norfolk. A complete list of these and the representatives on these boards can be found on the where we represent you page . If you would like something raised or would like to find out more about a meeting and the discussions which take place please do speak to the headteacher representative or admin for that meeting. Where possible we seek your views in advance of these meetings. This may be at the leadership updates, using email or through our polls via the app.


Our key focuses throughout 2018-2019 have been:

  • School funding
  • Headteacher induction
  • SEND
  • Ofsted framework changes

Our key focuses for the academic year of 2019-2020 will continue to be:

  • School funding
  • Headteacher induction
  • SEND

As well as:

  • Leadership development
  • Recruitment and retention
  • Wellbeing

If you have something you would like us to focus on, contact Kirsty our coordinator kirsty@educatenorfolk.co.uk
