A Cobholm school that was taken over by the Inspiration Trust has appointed a new headteacher.
Kimberly Morton will start in the role at Cobholm Primary Academy in January, and a spokesman for the trust said she had met with staff and parents at the school to explain her plans for the future.
Miss Morton is currently assistant principal at Norwich Primary Academy in Earlham, which she attended as a child.
The school, which is also in the Inspiration Trust, is rated good in its most recent Ofsted report.
'Both Norwich Primary and Cobholm have children from some of the most challenging areas of Norfolk, but as a former pupil I'm proof that you can go on to achieve and to help your community,' said Miss Morton. 'I'm looking forward to building on the good things that have already happened at Cobholm since it joined the Inspiration Trust.

'I've already had really productive meetings with the teaching staff and many of the parents, and it was great to see that parents really want to be involved with the school.'
Miss Morton will be working with executive principal Dr Craig Avieson, who is based at Great Yarmouth Primary Academy and has overall responsibility for both schools.
