An infant school in Taverham has said it hopes to become an academy at the end of the financial year.
Ghost Hill Infant School has finished a consultation with parents on becoming an academy with the Sapientia Education Trust, which was founded at Wymondham College.
It finished at the end of July and the school has written to parents to say it would be proceeding to the next stage of academisation, which will see it inform the Department for Education it wants to start the formal process of joining SET.
But the letter said to 'act in the best interests of the school and its pupils', it would consider all aspects of the financial arrangements and said it would not seek to convert until April 2018.
It said: 'To date, no agreements have been signed by the board and we are free to pull out at any time. We will only commit to conversion once we have signed the final contract and if the governors do not feel this is in the best long-term interests of the school then we will not sign.'
