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.

Under normal circumstance, we would be happy to welcome parents who are considering placing their children in our school. However, in these uncertain and unusual times we hope you appreciate that we must keep any visits into school to the bare minimum. We know that new parents like to get a feel for the school and, with that in mind, we have put together a virtual tour to show you all that we have to offer.

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.

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
