Welcome to Fakenham Infant and Nursery School from all the staff and children.

We are a thriving and successful school serving the families of Fakenham and surrounding villages.

We have a Nursery class, which has places for 52 part-time pupils aged between 3 and 4, and the main school takes children from Reception to Year 2.

Our aim is to provide high quality education for all our pupils and we hope to support them along the first steps in their school life within a safe and happy environment.

We are a very friendly and welcoming school and we aim to build a strong and long-lasting relationship with parents and the local community.  Please feel free to approach us if there are any further questions.

“Teachers make learning interesting because they know the needs and interest of pupils well. They mark pupils’ work with constructive comments and make it clear to pupils how they can improve.”

“The school keeps pupils safe and makes sure that they know how to keep themselves safe. Pupils behave well. They are friendly considerate and helpful and have positive attitudes to learning.”

“Since the previous inspection, the calm and determined leadership of the headteacher, the deputy headteacher and other school leaders, supported by an effective governing body, have brought about significant improvements. The high expectations of staff and governors and the school’s statement of ‘Together we can’, underpins the work of the school, in which teaching has improved and pupils’ achievement is good. Pupils’ have positive attitudes to school and their behaviour is good.”

“Pupils enjoy coming to school, sharing and discussing their ideas and learning from each other. They are confident that everyone in their class will listen carefully to what they have to say. Relationships between pupils and the adults are very positive. Pupils get on very well together both in classrooms and in the playground. Senior leaders have ensured there is a consistent scheme of behaviour management and teachers, support staff and pupils apply this system.”
