As part of our work both our Primary and Secondary Chairs alongside members of our Executive Committees attend a variety of boards and groups, representing Education as a whole and Norfolk Headteachers. Many of the polls and surveys we send out are as a direct consequence of discussions that take place in these meetings and are a way for Educate Norfolk to ensure we are representing your views.

If you would be interested in being a part of one of these groups or would like to get in touch with the representatives on one of these groups please use the details on the contact us page.
