Welcome to our website!

We hope that your association with the school will be a long and happy one.  Some of our parents have connections with the school stretching back for three or more generations.

This website aims to provide answers to any questions you may have about the school and to give you some insight into its organisation.  Parents considering sending their children to the school are warmly invited to contact me to arrange a suitable time to visit the school.

About the School

The school was designed by Daniel Penning, Surveyor, of Eye in Suffolk, originally opened in 1859 and subsequently extended. An extension to provide indoor toilets was completed in Summer 1998. A new dining room and conversion of the Tech room into a Servery was completed in March 2011. In the Autumn of 2011, a large trim trail was installed on the field.  Some of the old log books are kept in school and may be referred to by any interested party.

In September 2006 the school went into Partnership with Rudham Church of England Primary School (also designed by Daniel Penning) and became a Federation in April 2011. Mrs. Allen, Mrs Fowler and Mrs. Felton work across both schools.

In June 2016 we joined the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust(DNEAT) and became Weasenham Church of England Primary Academy.

At present there are 33 children on roll.  The younger children are taught by Mrs Felton in Robins Class (16) children Year R – Year 2. Kingfishers Class (17) are taught by Mr Suswain – years 3 to 6. At 11+ children generally transfer to Litcham High School.

The school was last inspected by OFSTED in January 2014 and a copy of the report can be found on the OFSTED page of our website.

School Sports Partnership

We have been part of a school sports partnership with Litcham High School since 2005. The aim of this partnership is to get children more enthused and motivated when it comes to sports, although we have never had a problem with this at our school! Since the partnership began, children have joined the other schools in our cluster (and beyond!) in festivals for rugby, football, hockey, cross country, rounders, Kwik Cricket, netball, golf, athletics and multi sports.
