An infant school in Thetford is to join an academy trust, becoming the seventh in Breckland to do so.

Raleigh Infant Academy became part of the Eastern Multi-Academy Trust, which runs 14 schools in the east of England, as the start of July.

It makes it the seventh school to join the trust's Breckland Hub, with others including Admirals and Diamond Academies, also in Thetford.

Duncan Ramsey, trust chief executive, said: It is a real privilege to be working with seven schools in the Breckland area. We are determined to support Raleigh Infant Academy effectively on its improvement journey and to play our part in raising educational standards across the region.'

In February, the school was rated inadequate by Ofsted, and was one of eight in Norfolk given a warning notice by the county council last year.
