We are a one form entry rural school with around 160 pupils between the ages of 4 and 11. The building was purpose built and St Mary’s Community Primary School was established in September 1983, replacing Beetley County Primary School (est. 1875) and Gressenhall Voluntary Aided School (est. 1847), both of which closed due to overcrowding in July 1983.
|The school is set in extensive grounds and enjoys
the use of mixed woodland, a large field with play
apparatus, a floodlit hard playing area, wildflower
meadow and pond. We are very fortunate to be able
to use the neighbouring back field which is held by
the Parish Council for the sole use of the school.
This land includes a car park for parents and a playing field.
|Every classroom has a door opening on to the school grounds.
In the heart of the school, there is a spacious library.
The school has a good sized hall.
Each classroom has Internet access and there is a class set of
netbooks that are used in all classes across the school.
|Norse information and menus
|School meals are provided by Norse and are prepared in our on-site kitchen.
|We highly value our partnership with parents and we try to
make this as effective as possible. Open mornings and Consultation Evenings are held regularly and parents can
make appointments to see class teachers or the Headteacher
at other times.
There are numerous formal and informal opportunities for communicating, including participation in workshops
and discussion evenings with a particular focus. All teachers
are very willing to chat briefly after school with parents.
We welcome parental involvement in the classroom, so please do ask if you would like to come in regularly to support with reading or other activities.
