Flourishing in Norfolk: A Children and Young People Partnership Strategy

At Heacham Junior School we’ve pleadged to help Norfolk’s children and young people Flourish.

Agencies working with children, young people and families across Norfolk have come together to form the Children and Young People Strategic Alliance, with the shared ambition that Norfolk is a county where every child and young person can flourish. The Strategic Alliance has produced Flourishing in Norfolk as our partnership strategy and plan for how we will work together to achieve this ambition over the next four years. Each letter of flourish reflects an aspect of children and young people’s lives and what they have told us is most important to them: their family and friends, access to learning, opportunities to lead a good life, being understood, building resilience, respect for their individuality, feeling safe and being healthy.

We want Norfolk to be a county where every child can flourish:

  • Family and friends Children and young people are safe, connected and supported through positive relationships and networks
  • Learning Children and young people are achieving their full potential and developing skills which prepare them for life
  • Opportunity Children and young people develop as well-rounded individuals through access to a wide range of opportunities which nurture their interests and talents
  • Understood Children and young people feel listened to, understood and part of decision-making processes
  • Resilience Children and young people have the confidence and skills to make their own decisions and take on life’s challenges
  • Individual Children and young people are respected as individuals, confident in their own identity and appreciate and value their own and others’ uniqueness
  • Safe and secure Children and young people are supported to understand risk and make safe decisions by the actions that adults and children and young people themselves take to keep them safe and secure
  • Healthy Children and young people have the support, knowledge and opportunity to lead their happiest and healthiest lives

At our school we have pledged to:
