Welcome to Nocton Community Primary School

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website. Nocton Community Primary School is the smallest school in the Spires Federation, with thirty seven children on roll.

 

 

We offer pre-school provision for children aged three and four years of age, and we have two classes, named by our children:

Flamingo Class: Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 (Miss Vaughan and Mrs Traynor)

Panther Class: Key Stage 2 (Mrs MacNicol and Mrs Douglas)

We are very proud of the education and provision that we are able to offer. Being a small school, we have a strong adult to child ratio, which enables the children to make good progress. We are proud to know all of our children very well, and as such we are able to offer them timely interventions, excellent sporting opportunities and a nurturing, family environment.

 

Our latest Ofsted inspection was in October 2018, and we were rated 'Good' in all areas.

We have incredible facilities, including: 

  • A newly developed outside classroom for the Early Years, designed with Miss Vaughan together with Specialist Leaders of Education and developed and constructed by Newby Leisure.

  • A fantastic stage area, designed and constructed by Beeswax Dyson Farming

  • A gardening area, designed and constructed by Beesway Family

  • A very large school playing field, in the centre of our beautiful village

  • A new school library, which is used every day by all children, and is currently being updated in collaboration with Usborne books

  • A refurbished lunchroom, where all children enjoy eating delicious meals, either packed lunches from home or hot meals provided by our new meal provider, 'Good Lookin' Cookin'

We offer full wrap-around care on site - please see the Wrap Around Care section of our school website for full details. In September 2021, we also launched a brand new 'Little Ducklings' Baby and Toddler Group. Please see the 'Little Ducklings' section of the school website for futher information.

We are proud to have been awarded the International Schools Award by the British Council for the next three academic years, 2021-2024. Please visit the International Schools tab on the Spires Federation website for full information.  

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.

The Executive Headteacher, Mr Walls, shares time over the three schools.  Each school has a Deputy Headteacher who leads the school when the Executive Headteacher is off-site.  At Nocton Community Primary School, the Deputy Headteacher is Mrs Douglas.
