Copies of the complete proposal can be obtained from the website at: ; https://norfolk.citizenspace.com/childrens-services/fakenham or by contacting the School Organisation Team, Children's Services Floor 8 (Bay 34), County Hall, Martineau Lane, Norwich, NR1 2DL.

This provision started on 19 October 2018.
The school and playgroup have seen the responsibility for 2 year old provision transferring to the school as a positive move to protect the existing places already offered on site but also strengthen the early education offer for parents. This proposal to change the age range formalises the governance arrangements for the 2 year old provision by legally changing the age range of Fakenham Infant and Nursery School. The school's determined admission arrangements for school entry in September 2019 remain unchanged and there is no change to the fact that a nursery place does not in any way guarantee a place at the school, as documented on the admissions policy on the school web site http://www. fakenham-inf.norfolk.sch.uk/
