Make 2020 the year you quit smoking

New year is the perfect time to make some changes, and quitting smoking is the best change you’ll ever make for your health.

Smokefree Norfolk is commissioned by our Public Health service, offering free, expert one-to-one help which, together with stop-smoking aids, provides you with your best chance of quitting. At Smokefree Norfolk there is a focus on giving people a choice and flexibility over how they quit – whether it’s with the help of nicotine patches, gum or e-cigarettes.

???? Take the first step to quitting by visiting the Smokefree Norfolk website or calling them on 0800 0854113.

DigiFest 2020

All throughout February our libraries will be hosting fun, free events for children aged 4-14 to get hands-on with a whole host of new and inspiring tech!

From racing inchworm robots, writing and coding a choose-your-own adventure story, and even a bit of stop-motion video making, there’s a digi-vent for all the kids. We’re also working with SENsational Families to provide some additional sessions which are exclusively for families of children with additional needs.

➡️ Sign up for one of the events now and find out more on our DigiFest webpage.

Two new exhibitions open at Norwich Castle

Deepening, a new film work by artist Laura Wilson exploring the hidden landscape of Must Farm near Peterborough, is now showing at Norwich Castle. Located on the edge of a working quarry, the farm is an exceptionally well-preserved Bronze Age settlement, often referred to as the UK’s Pompeii. The site has been excavated by Cambridge Archaeological Unit, revealing many important discoveries about how people lived and worked.

➡️ Visit the exhibition from 18 January - 29 March. Find out more info on the Norwich Castle website.

Also upcoming: Works from the Modern and Contemporary Art Collection showing from 25 January 2020 - 3 January 2021.

With works by Gwen John, Andy Warhol and Bridget Riley, plus a changing display of ten recent acquisitions including pieces by some of the most exciting artists working today, such as Oreet Ashery and Eva Rothschild.

What could travel look like in 2036?

The way that people travel is changing. Technology means we are can now live our lives without needing to travel, for example using online shopping. There are new travel apps, more technology being built into vehicles and more options such as car clubs and bike share schemes.

Our current Local Transport Plan was agreed in 2011 so now needs a refresh. We need your help to make sure our plans are fit for the future and heading in the right direction.

???? Take part in the Local Transport Plan consultation and have your say on our vision for transport in Norfolk.

????️ Norfolk fact: Did you know Thetford Forest is the largest lowland forest in Britain covering an area of 80 square miles?

Our plans for Special Educational Needs in Norfolk

We are forging ahead with our £120m plan for special educational needs provision in Norfolk. We’ve submitted a planning application for a school in Great Yarmouth for children with social, emotional and mental health needs, which will be run by Boudicca Trust. We are also currently consulting on reusing a former playing field’s land for a new autism school in Fakenham.
???? Give us your thoughts on the consultation.

We are also consulting on our plan to provide 142 specialist referral bases at 10 different mainstream schools across Norfolk. These operate as part of mainstream schools, providing access to special needs classes.
???? Have your say by visiting the consultation page before it closes on 4 February.  

Plans to transform travel in Greater Norwich revealed

Details have been published this week of a substantial joint funding bid to central government which, if successful, has the potential to transform travel in Greater Norwich with new cycle lanes and reduced journey times for bus passengers..

An overall investment in the region of £100m is being sought through the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund (TCF). The fund aims to make it easier for people to access jobs, training and retail, and responds to issues around carbon reduction and improving local air quality, with a strong focus on increasing walking, cycling and use of public transport.

Check yourself!

Did you know an estimated 1 in 6 adults in Norfolk are completely unaware that they have high blood pressure?

It’s dubbed the silent killer due to the lack of obvious symptoms, and it can lead to stroke, heart attack or heart disease if left unchecked. The campaign, launching at the end of January, aims to make people more aware of the risks of having high blood pressure as well as encourage you to get a free blood pressure check at one of the participating pharmacies across the county.

⏱️ For more information and to find out where your nearest participating pharmacy is, visit our Get Checked page.

Early childhood and family service for 0-5 year olds

Our new 2020 programme of activities for 0-5 year olds has now launched. From baby massage and toddler play sessions to baby bounce and rhyme there’s lots of fun to be had with your baby, toddler or pre-schooler. Many of the activities are free of charge and staff from the Early Childhood and Family Service will be on hand at some of the sessions to offer advice and help if you need it. 

???? For more information about what’s on in your area visit our website  

If you’re interested in setting up a baby or toddler group in your community we have grants of up to £2,500. Groups might include music, creative, arts or physical play, and we welcome applications from groups that encourage parents/carers to play alongside their child, and give opportunities to make new friends close to home.

➡️ Find out more on our website.

Health and Wellbeing Board Awards

We’re celebrating the health heroes and teams working across Norfolk and Waveney with the Health and Wellbeing Board Awards – and want to hear from you.

The awards recognise and celebrate the success of the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy with key partners and the Health and Wellbeing Board. This year’s theme is ‘prioritising prevention’, so we’re looking for individuals, teams and organisations that have made an exceptional contribution within their community to support and enable people to be healthy, independent and resilient throughout life.

????️ Nominate yourself or another health hero before 28 February.

Have your say on sexual health services

Have you had any tests or treatment for your sexual health in the last five years? Do you use contraception such as condoms, coils, implants or injections?

We’d like to know what’s been good about your experiences and what could be done differently to help us improve sexual health and contraceptive services in Norfolk. All answers will be completely anonymous, and even if you have never accessed sexual health services, your views can still help.

???? Have your say by completing this short Healthwatch Norfolk survey.

2nd Air Division Memorial Library -Redevelopment & Temporary Closure

Norfolk Council News Feed - Fri, 01/10/2020 - 15:14

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

January 2020

Library Redevelopment in 2020

The Library will close to the public from Monday 10 February for a planned redevelopment and will be reopening on Monday 30 March with a new name:

American Library

Memorial to the 2nd Air Division, 8th Air Force, United States Army Air Forces

During this closure all 2nd Air Division unit histories and some other specialist books will be available in the Norfolk Heritage Centre. The centre is on the second floor of the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library in The Forum. 

Our magazines and a small collection of our US travel books will be available on the first floor of the Millennium Library. Our ‘wing’ collections at libraries in Attleborough, Dereham, Sprowston and Long Stratton are not affected by the main library closure.

The digital archive, containing 30,000 original photographs, letters, memoirs and other documents, will be available as normal at https://digitalarchive.2ndair.org.uk/.

Library staff will be at the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library most days. They'll be behind the scenes so please ask at any public desk if you wish to speak to them.

We'll still be active on Facebook and Twitter too. You can also email us at 2admemorial.lib@norfolk.gov.uk and soon at americanlibrary@norfolk.gov.uk 

The background to this project

The redevelopment will help to safeguard the Library’s future. We want to attract more people over the threshold so that we can ensure that the stories and legacy of the Second Air Division continue to be told and honoured, and that they can inspire more people.

The transformation will bring their stories alive for a new generation through engaging new graphic and digital displays that cover both life on the ground and life in the air. Visitors will be able to discover what the servicemen did on a typical day on a base or a day off and what a mission involved from archive video, audio recordings and interactive displays.

Improvements to our entrance and facilities will make our Library more open, welcoming and accessible. We will also be able to increase and broaden our education and events programmes with a new space for this purpose.

Project Funding 

The project is funded entirely by the Memorial Trust of the 2nd Air Division USAAF, registered UK Charity no. 269047, &donations made to the Trust as part of a recent appeal. 

Project Partners

We have been working with experienced and passionate local and regional partners

  • The Click developed our new brand identity
  • Ugly Studios created the interpretation and exhibition
  • Demco are providing the Library shelving and furniture
  • Christina Lister undertook audience research & developed our marketing strategy.

Achievement Update Edition 13 - January 2020

Norfolk Council News Feed - Fri, 01/10/2020 - 15:12

Achievement and Assessment Update

Edition 13 - January 2020 

Happy New Year from the achievement and assessment teams.  We wish you all the best for 2020. Feedback from visits to schools and federations

It is good to be able to start the first spring term update with feedback from the school visits achievement advisers have made to date. We have now made more than 40 visits to LA maintained schools and federations. Thank you to all those that we have seen so far and we look forward to meeting many more of you during the spring and summer terms.

We have been really interested to hear about your priorities and the ways in which you are working. We have heard about some very interesting curriculum models and have found that, for many schools, curriculum development has been a significant focus over the last few years. We have heard about a range of programmes in place – some commercial schemes and some school-designed – and, where possible, we are making connections between schools that should be mutually beneficial. Many leaders have spoken about the ways in which they have reflected on their assessment systems and have sought to streamline and simplify these so that they can be more effective in improving outcomes. School leaders have described a forensic and systematic approach to formative assessment and the ways in which teaching is swiftly adapted in response. Many schools report benefitting from working within many different networks locally, nationally and internationally and leaders and governors were clear about the reasons why they make the links they do. We have heard about some innovative ways of working with parents and will share more about this next time.

New primary data support and training from July 2020

We are planning changes to our primary phase data training and support offer for the academic year 2020-2021 to give more schools increased early access to data and ongoing support that meets their individual needs. This offer will be built around an extended range of dashboards we have developed to support school, federation and MAT analysis.  

Starting directly after primary assessment outcomes in July 2020, our package will provide you with immediate access to full interactive analysis of early data supported by a termly programme of workshops and briefings.

The package price will be based on pupil numbers and can be bought for individual schools as well as groups such as MATs or federations. However, following the success of our bespoke work with groups of schools this year, we would like to encourage purchase as a group where possible. We hope you will take advantage of this offer and look forward to working with you again.

The package will include:

  • Access to full range of interactive dashboards updated throughout the year
  • All our workshops and briefings throughout the year, including:
    • Early results workshops in July
    • Question level analysis workshops in September
    • Tailored workshops in November (e.g. infant, junior, small school etc)
    • A series of twilight briefings 

The package pricing structure will be based on the number of pupils at the school or group of schools as set out below, and will include a number of delegate places at all events.

  • 0 - 105 pupils, 1 delegate place at all events - £200
  • 106 - 210 pupils, 1 delegate place - £300
  • 211 - 420 pupils, 3 delegate places - £500
  • 421 – 999 pupils, 5 delegate places - £700
  • For larger groups of schools we can also offer a bespoke package which we can deliver in house to maximise the benefits of working collaboratively. Please contact us at cs.achievement@norfolk.gov.uk to discuss this further. 

Additional delegate places can be purchased if they are available           

 

We will continue to offer data analysis, training and support for Key Stages 4 and 5 using the s4s system.

Assessment and Moderation Moderator-led Assessment Network : attendance and feedback

A huge thank you to all moderators who hosted and led assessment networks in November and to those schools that offered a room as an additional venue.

Safer Internet Day 2020

The Department for Education (DfE) is encouraging schools and FE providers to engage with Safer Internet Day.

This year’s Safer Internet Day, which will take place on Tuesday 11 February 2020, explores the theme of identity online.

To help schools and colleges run fun and engaging activities for Safer Internet Day, the UK Centre for Internet Safety has created a range of free resources for educators.

These resources look at the ways in which the internet shapes the way that young people think of themselves and others. Tailored for each age group, they include lesson plans, assemblies, posters, films, and quick activities.

There are also resources for parents and carers to use at home with their children, including conversation starters, quick activities and more. Over 2,100 organisations were involved in Safer Internet Day 2019, building from just 70 organisations in 2011.

You can find further information about this year’s events by visiting the Safer Internet Day website.
