General Information

North Elmham Primary School is a long-established village school, situated in the heart of North Elmham. The main part of the school is more than one hundred years old. The original building was extended in the 1950s and completely refurbished in 1997 when a new block comprising four classrooms, craft area, group room and library was added.

Our facilities include:

  • A large activity hall
  • A well-stocked library
  • A large school field and playground

For the academic year 2016-2017, there are 94 children in the school in four mixed-year classes:


The school welcomes enquiries from parents/ carers if you are interested in your child attending North Elmham Primary School. The headteachers are always happy to arrange a convenient time for you pay a visit and see the school in action.

The school follows county procedures for admissions as outlined in the school admissions policy. For further information please follow the links below

Uniform & Kit

The Governors of both schools strongly promote the wearing of school uniform and expect children to dress appropriately. We believe the wearing of school uniform helps to create a sense of community and probably makes preparation for school in the morning easier for parents/carers.

Meals & Snacks

Our school meals are now provided by Edwards and Blake and prepared at our partner school All Saints, Stibbard. Menus are available for parents and include a good range of fresh fruit, salad and vegetables and are nutritionally balanced. The meals are well received by the children.

We ask that parents order lunches a week in advance and order forms are available from the school office.

Please note that you cannot change your mind once meals have been booked and they must be paid for in advance.

Packed lunches should include some fruit or vegetable. We ask parents to avoid including sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks. Also due to allergy sufferers nuts should not be included.

Children in the younger part of the school are entitled to free fruit and we encourage all children to bring a healthy snack for morning break. Children are encouraged to drink water, which is freely available, and to use a water bottle throughout the day.

Children can bring in fruit and a bottle of water for break-time refreshment.
