Pupils will get "an even better education" after a Norfolk primary school became the latest to join an expanding trust, the headteacher has pledged. 

Millfield Primary School, in North Walsham, has become part of the Enrich Learning Trust, which supports seven other education centres across Norfolk.

Millfield headteacher, Jan Harazduik, said the school is “delighted” to be joining the trust, which will help it to provide “an even better education” to its pupils.

Mr Harazduik said: "We are delighted to be joining Enrich Learning Trust.

“This partnership provides us with access to a wealth of knowledge, experience and resources, which will enable us to provide an even better education to our pupils.

“We are also pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with North Walsham High School, ensuring a smooth transition for our pupils from primary to secondary school and to share our expertise with the other schools in the Trust."

Enrich Learning Trust currently supports seven Norfolk centres: Kenninghall Primary, Spooner Row Primary, Dereham Neatherd High, Long Stratton High, Wymondham High, Wymondham High Sixth and North Walsham High.

Russell Boulton, CEO of Enrich Learning Trust, said he was “thrilled” to welcome Millfield Primary to the trust.

Mr Boulton said: "We believe that collaboration and sharing of best practices is essential to providing a high-quality education to all our pupils.

“With the addition of Millfield Primary School, we can build on the success we have already achieved in supporting young people and ensure that our pupils are well-prepared for the opportunities of secondary school."

The trust’s schools have all been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. Its secondary schools all place within the top five pc of Multi Academy Trusts in England for pupil progress and in the top 10% for achievement, as published in the 2021/22 multi-academy trust (MAT) performance data.

Enrich Learning Trust’s primary lead, Sasha Furze, said she was “looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Millfield Primary School”, who “continue to provide high-quality education to the children of North Walsham”.
