Information about the school

Cringleford CE VA Primary is a popular and successful Church School at the heart of a thriving local community located just outside Norwich.

We currently have 448 children on roll aged between 4 and 11 years old and Crackerjacks Playgroup is located on the school site. As well as making sure our pupils achieve well academically, we strive to provide a rich and engaging curriculum which is underpinned by strong Christian values.

Children have many opportunities to take part in a range of visits, activities and projects that help their understanding of their local environment and the world around them.

We moved into our brand new school building in June 2013 and the whole school community is excited to be involved in a new phase in the history of Cringleford CE VA Primary School.

Learning behaviours

Since returning to school in March 2021 we have worked hard to restore our community and engage the children with new learning experiences through our creative curriculum. We have had a big focus on developing the children’s JONK learning values and we would love parents to support this at home. Please see the video and JONK leaflet below for more details.

Paper copies of information held on the website may be requested, free of charge, by contacting the office.
