The stabbing in Paston Lane by a gang came nearly a week ago (Monday, February 1) at about 9.30pm. And two days later, in nearby Mountsteven Avenue, Walton, a 16-year-old boy was attacked by another young person who punched him in the face with a weapon at 3.30pm. The incidents were revealed by Police Sergeant Warren Bottell, of the Community Enforcement Team, who said: This week we have seen an escalation around gang related youth violence between various groups of young people.

Sadly this has led to serious assaults being committed by young people on young people. We have therefore been working with other agencies to diffuse this issue. Further incidents are said to have taken place on February 4, involving threats and intimidation, but no further information is currently available.

PS Bottell added: We have therefore been out on foot and on cycles in the Werrington Centre, Skaters Way, Cuckoo s Hollow, Paston Lane and Mountsteven Avenue, working with youth workers to engage young people to gather information. We have been working in the Queensgate Bus Station to disperse youths causing anti-social behaviour at this location if required. We have also been working with local shops, residents and the public in the Paston area to gather evidence against a small number of local youths.

A meeting next week will enable us to decide what further action to take against them. If you have young people, children and students living in your household who you are responsible for, please make sure you know what they are doing, who they are associating with and making friends with on social media. Check their media account posts, speak to them about gang related issues, keep them safe.

Thank you to those of you who have messaged back with information about what is going on in your area. I have made a note of these issues and will allocate them out for patrols in due course. The issues raised are also passed to our colleagues in the SaferPeterborough Partnership for their information and action where possible.

More information will be added when we have it. /if} #if card-flag} /if} > card-author} > card-avatar} card-content}} > card-media} > card-timestamp} > card-action} ]]> References ^ Terms and Conditions (www.johnstonpress.co.uk) ^ No thanks, take me straight to the site.

College area review rerun

Five FE and sixth form colleges involved in a pilot review of post-16 provision in Norfolk and Suffolk last year will be revisited in November, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has confirmed. The news of the revisit as part of the region s planned area review comes as 11 colleges in Norfolk and Suffolk this month announced a collaborative partnership aimed to improve the quality of education across the area. BIS confirmed to FE Week that the upcoming area review would be broader than the pilot, looking at post-16 education and training provision across the two counties, how that meets local need and the extent to which colleges may need to make further changes.

Lessons learned from the pilot have been incorporated into the area review framework, BIS told FE Week . Following the pilot, which was carried out during the first five months of last year, the five colleges involved announced merger plans. Great Yarmouth College, Lowestoft College, and Lowestoft Sixth Form College said they are looking at forming a partnership, designed to combine their strengths but still protect the individual identity of each college .

East Norfolk Sixth Form College and Paston Sixth Form College announced plans to merge and work towards becoming part of a multi-academy trust. Christina Sadler, merger project manager for Lowestoft College, Great Yarmouth College and Lowestoft Sixth Form College, said: While we are unclear as to the extent of our involvement, we are happy to co-operate with and engage in the area review as required. In the meantime, we are continuing to work on our merger plans to secure our future for our learners and for the businesses in the east coast region.

Dr Catherine Richards, principal of East Norfolk Sixth Form College said: East Norfolk Sixth Form College and Paston Sixth Form College have announced our intention to merge and work towards becoming part of a multi-academy trust. Merging was one of the recommendations from the pilot review and this is being implemented. We are aware that wave five of the area review is due to return to Norfolk and Suffolk towards the end of the year.

However, we are expecting to have significantly progressed our plans by this time. Last year s pilot review was overseen by the FE Commissioner, Dr David Collins and Sixth Form College Commissioner, Peter Mucklow during the first five months of the year. A report published last July by Mr Mucklow said that it was clear from the evaluation, that it would be difficult for all five colleges to stand alone in the longer term.

Doing nothing has already been determined not to be a viable option, the report added.

There is the strong likelihood of the collapse of some of the local provision within the next two years if nothing is done.

New Anglia Colleges Group is Launched

The heads of colleges throughout Suffolk and Norfolk have joined together to create a new group to promote a vision for the future of further education in the region. The New Anglia Colleges group, which has been meeting regularly, has launched its manifesto today to collectively advance their quest for high quality further education throughout Norfolk and Suffolk. In it they discuss the need for secure funding which matches student need; for support of proper careers education in schools; access for students to grants and loans through new education accounts, affordable and accessible student transport, business centred English and maths qualifications; and public consultation on new school proposals.

The group represents 11 colleges from across Norfolk and Suffolk, who collectively teach 32,000 students and around 8,000 apprentices. The lifetime value of all the qualifications awarded is a staggering 1.379 billion. Dr Nikos Savvas, Chairman of the New Anglia Colleges Group and Principal of West Suffolk College, said: We are proud to be the driving force and the engine behind the improving economic growth in the region.

Our vision is important. It sets out the needs and priorities of the sector. We are working together as we believe passionately in the ethos of education without borders for the benefit of this region.

We will be working as one to support the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, so that together we are committed to raising educational standards and aspirations and a stronger regional economy. The launch of the document took place at a meeting of the head at West Suffolk College, Bury St Edmunds, on January 29. Find out more about the vision for further education across the region at www.newangliacolleges.co.uk 1 .

Already, the New Anglia Colleges group has worked together on a number of strategic objectives and joint funding bids. Mark Pendlington, Chairman of New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, who has written the foreword to the manifesto said: This is a really exciting vision and an important moment for everyone working in or studying at our local colleges, or who plans to become as student in the future.

This is our colleges working collaboratively and at their best right across Suffolk and Norfolk. Driving higher skills and delivering a skilled and inspired future workforce for businesses in the East is key to us all benefiting from the competitive international economy we are building here. This area is the natural home for future business leaders and entrepreneurs, and for them to see Suffolk and Norfolk as one of the best areas in the world to live and work.

The fantastic contribution our colleges make to the life of learners and the communities they serve is highlighted today. So let s celebrate the invaluable and indispensable relationship between further education and the world of work. Release the potential!

North Walsham High and Paston College in multi-academy plans

Paston Sixth Form College and North Walsham High School have announced that they are working together on a proposal to create a multi-academy trust (MAT) with East Norfolk College in Gorleston and Flegg High in Martham. The four institutions will be going through detailed discussions and planning before submitting a proposal to the Department for Education. Once this proposal is accepted, there will be a formal period of consultation by each school.

It is hoped that the proposed MAT will be in operation for the beginning of the 2016/17 academic year. Paston College and East Norfolk College have already announced they are in discussions about a proposed merger. Now the colleges and schools have been in discussion about raising standards through GCSE level to A-levels, as well as vocational qualifications.

The education leaders and governors of all four feel that close collaboration will offer parents and local employers a high quality option to develop the skills needed in the future. Whilst the exact details of the structure of the new MAT has not been finalised, it is envisaged that each college and school will retain a board of local governors to ensure local accountability. North Walsham High chair of governors at Alex Robinson said: The governors at North Walsham High School have spent the last three months looking in detail at the options for partnerships with other providers which will benefit our students.

The scale and influence of Paston College and East Norfolk, which both offer high quality teaching in many subjects, will inspire students and staff and create a sustainable local solution for our community. Kevin Grieve, principal at Paston College, said: Together we all share an ambition to accelerate improvements in education using local expertise. We hope to work with like-minded colleagues and extend the proposed trust to include primary schools and more high schools.

Most schools need to find economies of scale whilst keeping close to their communities.

Our plans will do just that. .

Paston merger plan to take college forward

Paston Sixth Form College is to merge with East Norfolk College in Gorleston to allow the colleges to continue to thrive. The two colleges are responsible for teaching a significant number of A-level students across Norfolk and North Suffolk and the proposals are to bring the two together for conintued success. Both colleges have a long tradition of excellent results, are rated good by Ofsted and, each year, more than 700 students go on to some of the most prestigious universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Nicola Lucking, Chair of Corporation at Paston Sixth Form College, ssaid: The colleges have always worked closely together, and the merger builds on this successful collaboration. Both have a strong tradition and ethos, providing an outstanding experience for all students. Current partnership work and further development will allow us to improve our provision and enhance the range of opportunities for students.
