Year nine triple science pupils at Wayland Academy, in Watton, were tasked with creating a researched campaign that offers support and guidance to those affect by fuel poverty.

The project is led by Camouflaged Learning, an educational support organisation, working behalf of Community Action and sciences researches from the University of East Anglia.

The project will continue in spring when students will present their ideas to scientists and members of the local community.

It is hoped the project judged to be most affective will become part of Community Action Norfolk’s own Fuel Poverty Awareness campaign.

Glen Allott, school principal, said: “We’re deeply proud of our students for their innovative ideas and the care for their community they’ve shown today.”
