Diocese of Norwich seeks views on bid to run Wymondham, Attleborough and North Runcton free schools
The Diocese of Norwich is canvassing views on its bid to run new free schools around Norfolk.
On its website, the Diocese has set up an online poll asking for views on its plans to sponsor new schools in Attleborough, Wymondham and North Runcton, near King's Lynn.
The schools have already been given the go-ahead based on incoming housing and growth in pupil numbers, but the government will need to appoint someone to run them.
As part of the application process, the Diocese needs to show support for its plans and demonstrate that families living nearby would want to attend the school.
The Diocese says that new schools would 'serve their local community' and be for 'those of all faiths or none'.
