SOUTHERY: School can go into space
Southery Primary School has unveiled its Learning Cabin to provide much-needed space for parents and families.
Instrumental in bringing the project to fruition is Learning Catalyst, Sue Vainu.
Sue’s role involves being a point of contact between the school and local families.
She has been working on a range of activities to encourage parents to get involved in school life and the new space will mean that she can offer even more opportunities for the school community to enjoy learning together.
A new programme, which includes maths, the Do Something Different, Healthy Weight Happy Life programme and gardening is already being developed.

Nick Daubney, chairman of the West Norfolk Partnership, said: “Enabling parents to get involved in school life and helping them to gain new skills for themselves can have a really positive impact upon their children’s education and the way in which learning is perceived in the household.
The cabin will mean that a programme of activities can be offered to families as well as providing a place where parents can meet the Learning Catalyst to discuss any issues related to school.”
The Learning Cabin was constructed by C Satchwell Builders & M Sharman Builders, on behalf of the West Norfolk Partnership following a £7,000 investment from the partnership.
Parents and families have been fundraising for the interior fixtures and fittings.
Other suppliers included; Jeds Garden services and G Sides Electrician, discount was received from The Range, B&Q and free signage was designed and erected by JD Signs.
