Nocton Community Primary School

 

Nocton Community Primary School is set on the edge of the idyllic village of Nocton. We cater for children from the ages of 4 to 11 in our two classes.

Nocton was inspected by Ofsted in October 2018 and was graded as “Good” in all areas.

Outside there is a good-sized playground which has a climbing wall, a sports field, a foundation stage outdoor play area, a trim trail and a gardening area. We also are lucky enough to have a hall which we access outside via the playground, it is a fantastic area that we use for assembies and, meetings and group work. We also offer it to be utilised by the local community. Recently we have redeveloped all of the learning environment, to ensure that they support the deleivery of our new and engaging curriculum. Our most recent addition is a new library which helps us to foster our love for books!

Nocton has both a Breakfast Club each morning and After-School Childcare for 3 hours each evening. We also run a Toddler and Baby group once a week on the school site.

In September 2015 Nocton School joined Digby and Dunston Schools in a federation. This is called the Spires Federation. The Spires Federation is wonderful for all of the schools as it opens up a wealth of learning opportunities for the children beyond what each school would be able to offer as one small, rural school.  The staff and children in all three schools work closely together, sharing expertise and resources, ideas, events, visits and workshops. We are one family, with one vision and shared values.

Mrs Emma Negus- Hill is the Executive Headteacher over the schools and she shares her time between them.  This enables her to focus on developing the schools further in terms of leadership and management.  Each school has a Deputy Headteacher who leads the school when Mrs Negus-Hill is off-site.  At Nocton the Deputy Headteacher is Mrs. Douglas.
