Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
Trust Appointed Governor
I moved back to live in Norfolk from Scotland with my two children in 1978 after accepting the post of Health Visitor for this area and worked with the GP’s at Melton Constable and Fakenham surgeries. I had a long and fulfilling career in the NHS both as a Health Visitor and as Deputy Director of Nursing which enabled me to develop new services in the community including the setting up of the school nursing service across mid Norfolk. Since retirement I trained for three years to become a Reader (lay minister) in the Church of England and now enjoy seeing the children in a variety of settings across the local community. I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to develop to their full potential through excellent education and loving parenting. Since becoming a Local Authority Governor in 2015 my area of responsibility is for children with special education needs. I hope my past experience as a Health Visitor, Senior Nurse Manager and now as a Reader can benefit the children and staff of Astley Primary School to achieve the vision of aiming high and succeeding together.
