New management has been announced for a Norfolk school.

Norfolk Academies multi-academy trust is set to lose Wayland Junior Academy in Watton by the end of March.

The primary school has announced it will instead join Corvus Education multi-academy trust.

It comes as three high schools across the county also switched trusts last week.

Both Attleborough Academy Norfolk and Fakenham Academy Norfolk will join Sapientia Education Trust, while Wayland Academy Norfolk will join Inspiration Trust by April 1.

Before Wayland Junior school became an academy, it was put in special measures in 2013 as Watton Junior School.

Corvus Education has worked with the school since July, when the trust was invited to support an improvement plan.

Last month a monitoring inspection visit concluded this plan was fit for purpose and that the principal's 'single-minded determination' to get things right for pupils 'is driving school improvement'.
