Norfolk Children’s University works with Norfolk schools to provide memorable and high quality learning experiences designed to inspire and raise aspirations, ambition and achievement
Any child aged 5-14 years, without exception, can participate in Children's University activities. Each child is free to decide which activities to pursue, and records their ‘learning journey’ in their Passport to Learning.
Achievement is rewarded with involvement in a fabulous graduation event at the University of East Anglia.

These tangible outcomes make membership of Norfolk Children’s University an ideal investment of Pupil Premium Funding.

Norfolk Schools already offer an amazing range of opportunities for out of school hours learning either before, at lunchtime or after the school day.
We work together, through a process of self-evaluation, to ensure that the highest quality of learning is provided in all Children's University learning activities, whether delivered on-site in schools or off-site by community providers.

We will send you joining information, membership cost information and forms to complete. Once you have registered you will need to order passports for the children, these are £5 each. We will send you, advertising posters and stickers and arrange to come in and do a special launch event in your school. Validated club organisers will then be able to put stickers into passports for every hour of learning completed by each child.
