Reffley Academy pupils, twin sisters Summer and Sophia Ellis, 8, were all smiles as they and thousands of other West Norfolk children went back to school today (Monday).

The majority of children have been home learning since January 5 and this week marked the  start in the government’s roadmap towards easing out of lockdown with schools welcoming students back into the classrooms after weeks of preparation.

It was a big day for Greenpark Academy at North Lynn which welcomed pupils through the gates of the new school, replacing St Edmund’s School at Kilham’s Way.
