And Little Snoring Community Primary School

Welcome to West Raynham Primary Academy

West Raynham School is a Church of England Primary Academy.

This means that the Board of Governors comprises representatives of the Church, Diocese of Norwich Education and Academy Trust (DNEAT), the Parish Councils and Parents.

The present school building dates back to the 1854, and is built on land owned by the Townsend Estate, whom we still have a close link with today.

We admit children from The Raynhams, Helhoughton, Raynham Park (Kitpons) and Fakenham.

We have links with Colkirk Preschool, Weasenham Preschool and the many preschools in Fakenham. We also have a link with the Children's Centre in Fakenham.

In September 2004, the school entered into a Partnership / Management agreement with Sculthorpe Primary School. Both schools are managed by one Executive Headteacher. Mr C Allen divides his time between the two schools.

Whilst the two schools federated in January 2011 both schools remain very individual and maintain their own growing budgets. In January 2014 a third school joined our federation – Colkirk CE VA Primary School, forming the Unity federation of Church Schools. Each school has Head of School, this person is in charge when Mr Allen is off-site.

There are many advantages to being in federation, including:

The benefits of being part of DNEAT, include:

How we work:

The school is divided into three classes (Beech, Willow and Maple) each taught by a qualified teacher and /or a HLTA, most are supported by Teaching Assistants.

Some of our Teaching Assistants work with SEN children and other work within the whole class environment. All are at least NVQ 3 trained.

Our class sizes are around 16-24 pupils per class (roughly 10 pupils less than most larger primary schools locally).

Our latest results can be found on the DFE performance website
