On behalf of the children, staff and governors, we would like to say welcome to the Great Ellingham Primary School website. We aim to present useful information here about our school, whether for existing or future school families and pupils.

Our school is a lovely and well-equipped school, situated in a quiet and accessible village less than two miles from Attleborough. Most of our classes are mixed age and every pupil will spend two years in one class at some point in their time with us.

We host an open morning each autumn for parents who are considering placing their children in our school - details of the forthcoming event will appear shortly. We also welcome visits by prospective parents at other times of year.

Please do contact the school office on 01953 453342 or email office@greatellingham.norfolk.sch.uk if you have any further questions or comments; there will always be someone happy to help with your enquiry.

You can also contact the school office if you require a paper copy of any of the information provided on our school website.

We have high expectations for our pupils; they achieve and behave well. Ofsted have graded our school as good and we continually aim to improve our provision and outcomes for pupils.

We feel this is summed up in our school motto:

Great Education: Confident Pupils
