St Edmund's Catholic Primary School

Welcome to our school website, we hope you enjoy your visit!


Let me introduce myself. My name is John Harris and I am currently the Chair of Governors for St Benet's and St Edmunds Catholic Primary Schools.

I have a background in teaching, having worked in secondary, middle and primary schools in Leicestershire. In 1994 I moved to Norfolk to work as a Primary Advisor for the Local Authority, providing support and guidance for schools throughout the county, and having a particular responsibility for small schools. I have also worked on research and development projects (and on publications) for the Department for Education, the Open University, the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, the BBC and the National College for Teaching and Leadership. 

I also serve on the Governing body of St Mary and St Peter Primary School, Gorleston. I am a member of the Catholic community of my home village of Acle, within the parish of St Peter's Gorleston.


Kind Regards


Mr John Harris
