In October 2013, our school was judged as GOOD by OFSTED. Follow the link below to read the full report.
Winterton Primary School and Nursery is situated in the heart of the seaside village of Winterton-on-Sea, just north of Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. It serves the villages of both Winterton and nearby Somerton. Children living in Somerton are entitled to school transport. There are also some children from other neighbouring villages whose parents have made the choice to send their children to a small primary school where the ethos is based on community, care and developing every child using the knowledge and experience of the supportive staff team. We see the school community as a large family where every individual is given the opportunities to learn and develop according to their own needs and interests.
We are an established primary school with the full age range, having children in all year groups, from Nursery to Year 6. Children are taught in mixed-age classes of two year groups with a high adult:pupil ratio giving all the children a chance to develop to their full potential in all areas.
The school boasts its own large hall with a servery and large airy classrooms. The original building underwent considerable re-modelling to provide a large Learning Resources Centre/Computing Suite, additional toilets, a new staffroom, the headteacher’s office and a group work room. There is also a dedicated library room.
We are committed to making the most of the outside learning environment and we have made extensive improvements in this area. We have invested in an outdoor classroom, adventurous play facilities, playground markings to encourage multi-skills development and a willow shelter, designed and built by our children as part of a Creative Partnerships project.
We are all very proud of our school and our children.
Welcome to Winterton! Please enjoy your visit and come back soon.
