Walpole Highway Primary School

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

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

At Walpole Highway we pride ourselves on having a reputation as “being like one big happy family.” The children treat one another with respect and look after each other. 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 and all are pushed 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 44 children working in three classes. The main building houses the older children in Key Stage 2, the hall and office. The newer building at the rear of the school houses our younger children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

There is a playground with a trim trail and a large playing field – ideal for sporting activities. We offer lots of 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.
