Year 6 children at Stalham Infant School have taken on new positions of responsibility. 

The school's senior pupils filled out application forms where they wrote about the skills and qualities they would bring to the roles on offer, which included librarians, reading buddies, lost and found monitors, house captains and ambassadors.

Glenn Russell, executive headteacher, and north Norfolk MP Duncan Baker, presented badges to the youngsters at an assembly. 

Mr Russell said: "We feel it is important to involve our children in the running of the schools.

"I am really proud of the quality of the applications and the level of work that the children have put into the process.
