Hello and a very warm welcome to our school, and our web site.


The Governors have agreed to start exploring the possibility of forming a co-operative trust with several local schools. Please see the section school information and Acorn Co-operative Learning Alliance.

Our School 

We are a rural community primary school situated in the village of Old Buckenham

As a Primary School we cater for the age range 4 to 11, a seven year educational span.

We have seven classes: one for each academic year, which enables us to deliver the EYFS, National Curriculum to classes containing single age ranges.

The school was opened in 1963 and has been extended considerably since then. We are particularly proud of our outstanding grounds including, two playgrounds, a wildlife area with pond, a very vast games’ field, international arboretum, amphitheatre, tunnel and mound, an adventure playground and an exciting and stimulating outdoor learning area for our youngest children.

Due to our close proximity we have very strong links with both the Old Buckenham Pre-school and the Old Buckenham High School, enabling us to work closely together.

We are very lucky to have such a fantastic space for the children.

We also offer a range of trips and clubs which provide and promote opportunities for children to discover their talents.

At Old Buckenham Primary School the adults make sure we are happy and safe.  The adults are all nice and the school is a great place to learn. We have fun learning at Old Buckenham. There are loads of activities and it is a place where you make friends for life. (OBCPS, School Council, Nov 2014)

We are able to offer a daily breakfast and afterschool club, open from 7:45am – 6pm, providing safe and nurturing wrap-around care for our children, including meals.
