A junior and infant school are set to start the new academic year in a new partnership.

Caister Infant and Nursery School will enter a federation with its neighbour Caister Junior School from September.

The schools share a site in Kingston Avenue in Caister-on-Sea and together serve around 700 pupils.

Jonathan Rice, current headteacher at the junior school, will take up the role of executive headteacher across both schools from September 1 while Sian Harmer, acting headteacher at the infant school, will stay on as head of school there.

The federation also means that the schools will share a governing body.

Mr Rice said he expected the federation to improve the experiences of parents and pupils, particularly during the transition from infant to junior school.

He added: "We are all really looking forward to the possibilities this federation will open up."
