To parents, pupils, carers and ex-pupils, the value of the Hewett School is incalculable. With its dedicated staff, extensive grounds and excellent facilities it offers a safe and welcoming environment for children to enjoy their school years and reach their full potential.
In 2013 Ofsted judged The Hewett School as “good”. Yet little more than a year later, they put it in special measures. While this inevitably raises questions about the whole Ofsted process, it is true that, as with almost any school, there are improvements that can be made.
We believe that Hewett, in its current status as a foundation school fully accountable to the local community, is in a position to make those improvements. With the full backing of the County Council, we believe it can successfully promote its unique educational offer and, once more, face the future with confidence.
Some extra explanation on the background and context behind the petition is provided here.

Neither house numbers or email addresses will be displayed publicly and, though it is preferable to give your name, those signing the petition have the option to remain anonymous.

We, the undersigned, call on Norfolk County Council to give their full support to Hewett School, and do all in their power to secure its future and success as a Local Authority school.
