A school whose early years provision is rated outstanding, despite it being located in one of the most deprived council wards in the country, has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award.
Ormiston Herman Academy in Gorleston has been shortlisted in the Early Years Setting of the Year category in the Times Educational Supplement Schools Awards.
The nomination in the ‘Early Years Setting of the Year’ category, builds on the academy’s 2017 Ofsted report, which rated its early years provision outstanding.
Kate Rutherford, principal of Ormiston Herman Academy, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be nominated for this award, especially during such a challenging year for everyone working in Early Years.”
