A Suffolk headteacher has died after suffering a fall whilst on holiday in France.
Amanda Phillips, who was principal at Ipswich Academy, suffered serious head injuries in the accident.
David Willis, who is chairman of the Paradigm Trust that runs the academy, called the death a ‘dreadful tragedy’.
It is with tremendous sadness that I have to tell you that Amanda died yesterday.
I know I speak for us all when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with her husband and family.
She led Paradigm Trust with enormous energy, tremendous skill and most of all an enduring passion to give every child an outstanding education.
Parents across Norfolk are being encouraged to bring maths into everyday family life as part of a new County Council campaign.
Count On Norfolk is being launched today to coincide with half-term and gives parents top tips and ideas on how to have fun with their children using numbers at home.
A key part of the campaign is to get parents to be more positive about maths, and bringing maths to life through fun activities and play.
Key Stage 2 maths performance in the county remains below the national average. By changing attitudes to maths and developing a culture of fun and regular learning at home, the County Council hopes overall achievement in maths will improve.

Bedfordshire's fire and rescue service are warning people to stay safe in the water after a number of drownings last year.
They were in Bedford to educate the public on what to do if they see someone in trouble, urging people to be vigilant near open water ahead of the summer months.
They performed a water rescue demonstration, taught CPR and gave many youngsters the chance to see what it is like being involved in a rescue.
To keep yourself safe is the most important thing. Not to go in the water yourself to try and help someone because if they're not a very good swimmer they could pull you underneath and then there's two people in trouble
