Freethorpe Primary School (4-11) is set on the edge of Freethorpe village: with children coming to the school from other village communities including, Halvergate, Tunstall, Wickhampton and Limpenhoe. Freethorpe Pre-school also runs from within our school building and there are strong links with this setting. As well as this staff and parents have set up their own Toddler Group (Freethorpe School Stay and Play), in school, for parents and carers with younger age pupils. We provide child-care provision and learning for children in the area from the age of 2 to 11.
There are currently 152 pupils on roll. As well as a large playground area, specialist role play and physical development spaces for Reception pupils and our grounds have also been developed into a wonderful outdoor classroom environment with paths, trees and wild flowers that teem with wildlife.
A Love of Learning and developing individual knowledge and skills are at the heart of the broad education that our school provides. Values such as friendship, respect, care and compassion are an important part of how we learn together in school. Our school’s aim is for every child, in partnership with the parents, carers and the community, to achieve their best and to be able to develop their own diverse talents. We do this by offering a rich, varied and broad curriculum which celebrates the area in which we live, whilst providing opportunities to explore the wider world.
We are a National Healthy School, supporting all areas of child development, but we also recognise the importance of the contribution that the pupils themselves make in the school: school council members contribute to the decision making process of the school and we have trained Peer Mediators and Playground buddies.
The school has built close ties with the local villages, including sports groups such as Freethorpe FC, Halvergate Cricket Club, Halvergate Bowls and Acle tennis club as well as the local churches.
Parents and Carers play a vital role in the success of our school.
