Castle Acre Primary School has received a special award in recognition of its efforts during the pandemic.

The plaque is one of several Pandemic Memorial awards that Lady Dannatt, lord-lieutenant of Norfolk, asked the parish council to award to deserving community groups.

The council decided to give it to Castle Acre's school to acknowledge what the school, staff, students, parents and carers, went through during lockdown and the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.

The plaque will eventually be displayed in the village hall alongside several other memorials, providing a more central location accessible to the whole community.

The words on the plaque read: "To commemorate our community’s resilience in the year of the pandemic 2020-2021."

The 'Live your best, act your best and think your best today' legend come from Harriet Martineau, who was born in Norwich, and is considered a pioneering social theorist.

Head of school Emma Spaul, and executive headteacher Anne Neary, are both incredibly proud of the work done by the staff team across the whole of the Nar Valley Federation, Castle Acre, Narborough and Sporle Church of England primary academies and are delighted that Castle Acre staff have this award.

Executive headteacher Mrs Neary said: "Our staff are working so hard during this pandemic, supporting children's mental health, signposting support for families, whether that is financial, practical or emotional, teaching online, teaching outdoors, teaching when there are not very many staff in school and a mixture of children in school or at home and they deserve to be recognised for all their efforts, so we want to say thank you to the parish council for this honour"
