Two New Free Schools for Suffolk?

Plans have been put to the Government to open two new free schools in Saxmundham and Beccles in Suffolk.

The schools can be independantly run by teachers, parents, businesses or charities and can do things like have longer days or cover more subjects. They also don't have to follow a normal curriculum.

Its after two were opened in the region at the beginning of this school year back in September - one in Norwich and at Clare near Sudbury in Suffolk.

Graham Watson who's behind the plans says lots of parents support the idea and tells Heart more about what a free school is...
