Terrington St John Primary School

On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Terrington St John Primary School’s website. I hope that our website will give an insight into life at Terrington St John and also provide you with some useful information about the school.

Terrington St John is a small rural primary school in West Norfolk, close to the Cambridgeshire border. It forms part of the Windmill Primary Federation along with Walpole Highway, Tilney St Lawrence and West Walton.

At Terrington St John, we pride ourselves on having a reputation as a friendly, family orientated school. The children all know one another well and feel safe and secure. We offer a rich, stimulating, learning environment. The dedicated and creative staff have high expectations for our pupils. This means that children are routinely challenged to achieve their full potential. Positive learning behaviours are promoted and these are evident in all classes. Staff are committed to securing the best outcomes for every child regardless of their individual starting points. We like to engage parents and carers and together place what is best for our children at the heart of all we do.

Our school currently has 47 children working in three classes in the mornings and two classes in the afternoons. The main building is a traditional Victorian brick building, housing the Reception and Year 1 class, hall, offices and small intervention rooms. The mobile classrooms house children in the other two classes.

There is a playground at the back of the school with a trim trail and the playing field is situated directly opposite the school. There is a popular Breakfast Club and many opportunities to take part in a range of After School Clubs.

Thank you for visiting our website and showing an interest in our school. Any paper copies of information can be requested from the school office. If you would like to arrange a visit to the school or find out more information, please contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
