Old Buckenham Primary School

Hello, and a very warm welcome to Old Buckenham Primary School!


Old Buckenham is tweeting!

We are a rural community primary school situated in the village of Old Buckenham, Norfolk. As a primary school we have always catered for the age range 4 to 11, a seven year educational span, however in August 2018 we took on Buckenham Pre-School Group to extend our age range from 2 years old. We are therefore now a joint Primary and Nursery School. We have seven classes: one for each academic year, which enables us to deliver the EYFS and 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 vast games’ field, international arboretum, amphitheatre, tunnel and mound, an adventure playground and an exciting and stimulating outdoor learning area for our youngest children. We are very lucky to have such a fantastic space for the children.

Due to our close proximity we have very strong links with both Old Buckenham High School and Chapel Green Special School, enabling us to work closely together.

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

Ofsted Report – we are really pleased to share with your our latest Ofsted report where we were judged to be a GOOD school.

Breakfast and After School Club

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.
