Welcome to Great Ellingham Primary

On behalf of the children, staff and governors I 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 are happy to welcome parents who are considering placing their children in our school, and you can contact the school office on 01953 453342 or email office@greatellingham.norfolk.sch.uk for more information.


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
