About our school

“Our school offers a safe and stimulating Christian environment where all our children have opportunities to be the best they can be.”

Welcome to Frettenham Primary School, we thank you for taking an interest in our school. We would invite you attend our school, and would welcome you to contact the office to arrange a convenient time for this.

The prospectus will give you an idea of school life at Frettenham Primary School where we like to work in partnership with parents and carers to provide a happy, safe, learning environment for you and your child.

We are a small rural school which has a wonderful family atmosphere because the staff know the children well and children of all ages learn and play together. We provide a lively and creative curriculum where individual children’s needs are met.

About the building

Frettenham Primary School is a small community school situated seven miles north of Norwich in the village of Frettenham, The school currently caters for pupils ages 4-11 and has existed since 1876. Many educational and social changes have taken place in this time and the school has always responded to the challenges of meeting children’s education needs in a positive and constructive way.

The school operates in five separate buildings. There is a Victorian school room which has had three extensions over the last 11 years, to provide indoor toilets/cloakroom area, library, staff room, Headteacher’s office and outdoor play area for Foundation Stage pupils, with an all weather canopy. A log cabin was constructed in 2013 to provide an additional learning space for the school. A new library was built in 2016.

The school has a very large field with an adventure playground equipment, replaced in the summer of 2014. A new outdoor early years area is currently under  construction.

Nebula

White Woman Lane Junior School, Old Catton Junior School, Frettenham Primary School, Hainford Primary School, Horsford Primary School and St Faiths’ Primary School will be joining together to form a federation from September 2015 onwards.

We are now delighted to officially announce the new name for this partnership, the federation will be known as Nebula.

A lot of thought and effort has gone into this decision and we feel the new name is reflective of this. The word nebula originates from the creation of
stars, and that is exactly what all of our schools represent - places where individual talents and abilities are recognized and where stars are born.

It is important to stress that this federation name will only be used to give our collection of schools an over-arching name, and each school will keep its individual name, identity, logo and uniform.

The new identity and partnership gives us the opportunity to take advantage of significant benefits that will help to improve the education of your child. As Executive Head Teacher I will oversee the progress in all six schools, working with each school to ensure all pupils reach and achieve their full potential.
