Norwich has been identified by the government as a 'social mobility coldspot' in need of additional education funding.
The Education Secretary Justine Greening says the city will be one of six new Opportunity Areas which will support children and young people in disadvantaged areas.
The government will give £60 million to the areas identified as facing challenges to social mobility. The cash will see tailored plans developed in collaboration with local communities, educational institutions and business organisations, aimed at unlocking the potential of children and young people.
“Ensuring all children can access high-quality education at every stage is critical. This is about giving children in these areas the right knowledge and skills, advice at the right time, and great experiences.
“My department will work with local authorities, education and skills providers, businesses, and the wider community, not just to focus on what we can do to help inside schools, but also create the opportunities outside school that will raise sights and broaden horizons for young people.”
