Welcome to our new school website. We hope it provides you all the information you need. Making the right choice of school for your child is perhaps one of the most important decisions you make so we highly recommend you come and visit us. We are confident you will find us warm and welcoming with much to offer to your child.
I am the Executive Principal for Angel Road Infant, Angel Road Junior School and Bignold Primary School. We joined Evolution Academy Trust on September 1st 2019, so now benefit from being part of a larger family of schools across Norwich and Suffolk.
Our three schools also benefit from being located in the heart of the wonderful and historic City of Norwich but within easy reach of the beautiful Norfolk country side and coast. We are proud of the diverse communities each school serves. We believe that children in our schools thrive from this diversity, enabling them to be responsible, caring and respectful young citizens.
Each of the schools has its own unique characteristics. We are collectively uncompromising in our ambition for the children and the communities we serve so that our children can succeed now and in their future as they enter the next phase of their education and childhood.
We pride ourselves on ensuring a blend of high levels of professionalism, expertise and inclusive practices. The leaders in the schools work very closely together in an open and honest way to make sure that we are challenging one another, sharing best practice and utilising each other’s strengths. We have high expectations of our teams and equally expect our school staff to be respected members of their community so we can all work positively with children and families.
We welcome your comments, ideas and feedback.

I am the Head of School at Bignold. I fulfill all the day-to-day roles you would expect a Headteacher to perform and will be the person whose name you will see on most communication from school. I would also like to welcome you to Bignold and to tell you a little about what makes it such a special place to be.
Bignold serves a diverse catchment in which people of a wide range of different backgrounds and cultures live and work together. We are fiercely proud of this and strive to do all we can to inspire our children to be the very best that they can be. I am a firm believer in the power of education to change lives and the whole staff at Bignold share the common belief that we are here to promote positive outcomes for our children.
We are currently working on a redesign of our Curriculum (please see the Curriculum section of the website for details) and part of this process is a celebration of the key shared values that exist within our school community and beyond. This is a work in progress and we are keen to share ideas with everyone in our community. Please see weekly newsletters for updates as this develops.
Bignold is a warm, welcoming place and I look forward to your next visit.
Head of School
