An initiative has been launched in Thetford to help keep children in school.

The Thetford Excellence Partnership and 11 partnership schools have launched a joint scheme offering support to pupils and parents on attendance issues.

Eleven pupils - one from each school taking part in the scheme - helped launch a leaflet which has been distributed to every parent and carer of school-aged children in the town.

It contains support and advice on how to tackle issues with punctuality and truancy.
