Opened 25 Feb 2019



On 7 June 2019, in her role as Decision Maker, Sara Tough, the Executive Director of Children's Services, agreed that the following proposals should be implemented:

  • To change the age range of St George's Primary School, to 4-11 years from 1 September 2019


Consultation on a proposal to change the age range at St. George's Primary & Nursery School from 1 September 2019.

Norfolk County Council is asking for views on their proposal to change the age range from 3 - 11 years to 4 - 11 years, from 1 September 2019 at St. George's Primary & Nursery School.

This is a result of recent changes in early years education, by the Department for Education.  Many families are now entitled to 30 hours per week of funded early years education , instead of the previous entitlement of 15 hours.

This means parents are looking for more flexibility from nursery providers.  Governors at St. George's are keen to provide more flexibility, but this is proving difficult via the current maintained nursery.  Therefore the governors are proposing to run the nursery for 2 - 4 year olds, via their Community Facility Powers from 1 September 2019.

There will be no major change to the school - both the school and nursery will continue to be governed by the same governors and led by the same headteacher.   The published admission number and admission arrangements for the main school will remain the same.


Why We Are Consulting

We would like to know what you think about our proposal to change the age range at St. George's Primary & Nursery School, from 1 September 2019.
