FLEGG High School has been awarded the Investors in Families Award. This is a prestigious National Award which recognises the part the school plays in working with families in order to ensure each pupil achieves as well as they can at school. The school has been working towards the award since October 2009 and had to produce evidence based on the 5 Every Child Matters Outcomes. The main criteria was the value the school places on its relationship with families.

A working party was set up by deputy head Mike Ward and consisted of inclusion manager Sue Stuckey, parent governor Ameesha Williams, director of business and enterprise Ruth Bullard, and Linda Hargreaves, parent support advisor. Linda put together an absolutely magnificent portfolio of evidence to be presented to the assessor, Beverley Bird, who was full of praise for the way in which the school approached the award and said Flegg was the first school in the Eastern Region of Norfolk to receive the accolade. Headteacher Russell Boulton said: “As a team we are working together to increase life chance and a happier future for our pupils but it is vital that it is a combined effort. Future success of our school community is about how the team (family, school and community) work together.”

Among the new initiatives introduced have been an Annual Survey of Parents and pupils to monitor and evaluate school performance, a more rigorous and regular reporting of assessments to parents and a major focus on attendance has seen absences figures dramatically reduced.
