Children in Cringleford celebrated the completion of their new £7.8m school in a special assembly.

The Bishop of Norwich, the Right Reverend Graham James, attended Cringleford Church of England Primary School on for a special dedication ceremony.

Norfolk County Council, the Diocese of Norwich and developers of the new Round House Park estate have funded the 420 place school, in Dragonfly Lane.

The County Council invested £4.8m in the project, which doubled the number of primary school places in the growing village. The new school, which opened in June, replaced the former school, in Cantley Lane.

Neil Henery, headteacher, said: 'Our new school is a beautiful building and a great place in which to teach and learn.
