Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
Reading Award Schemes
The purpose of our reading award schemes is to encourage students to read regularly and widen their reading choices by trying a range of different genres and authors.
Olympic Reading Award
Books for this scheme are selected from a wide range of genres such as fantasy, romance, sci-fi, mysteries etc. Students must read books from different genres for each award and log them on a record card, which is then verified by parents or a member of staff.
On completion of the award, students are asked to write a review of their favourite book, which can be used as a recommendation to other students via our book blog, and newsletter. In assembly they are awarded a certificate and either a bronze, silver or gold star-shaped pin badge to wear on their tie.
