Operation Encompass

CNS is part of a jointly run operation between Norfolk County Council and Norfolk Police called Operation Encompass. Encompass has been set up to help schools provide support to children who have been present at incidents of domestic violence.

Technology enhances learning and CNS strives to ensure students get the most from it by encouraging responsible online behaviour. Let's have fun exploring the world of online research and learning, but at the same time, let's be mindful of e-safety.  We adhere to the principles of e-safety as defined by the Department of Education.

Reality Check: Drug awareness presentation

Reality check was a presentation delivered to our 6th form in December from St Martin's Hostel. The life skills development officer is joined by recovering substance misusers and real life stories are relayed to students about the impact of drugs and alcohol misuse. Whilst being adapted to appropriate age, it was hard hitting and gave students the chance to hear from both recovering users and family members affected by these issues who talked about the impact on them in this excellent presentation. 

Following the impact report, this presentation will now be tailored and delivered to our year 10 and 11 students in February: Report on Reality Check


Bullying is not acceptable behaviour and it has to be stopped. Being a victim of bullying is painful, but talking about it really helps and together we can make a difference. Life at CNS should be an enjoyable experience, not marred by the unacceptable behaviour of others. As a student of CNS you should feel safe at school, so we ask you to talk to us if ever your feel at risk of physical, verbal or indirect abuse.


CNS students take part in anti-bullying week in November 2016.
