'Reaching For The Stars'

Trusting, Believing, Growing.

Message from the Headteacher                                                       
On behalf of the children, staff and Governors I would like to say welcome to the Barnham Broom Church of England VA Primary School website.

Our School is a lovely, well-equipped school, situated in the beautiful village of Barnham Broom, nestled between Norwich and Wymondham. Our school has been extended over the years and we are proud to maintain many of the original parts of the school.  We have strong links with our local church St Peter's and St Pauls and are well supported by our local community.

Our philosophy is to enable every child to learn to the best of their ability; to achieve their full potential and to attain high academic standards. With our vision 'Reach for the Stars'  we strive to create an environment where the children’s self-esteem and respect for themselves and others can develop to the full; where we support each other to do our very best and where we celebrate our special qualities and individuality.  

We pride ourselves on our strong Christian values and ethos; we believe that everyone is an amazing, unique individual and we welcome, care for and support all in our school and wider community.

Barnham Broom is part of the Wymondham Cluster of schools and our children feed into the Wymondham, Norwich, Dereham and Attleborough Secondary/High Schools.

 Welcome to our school.
Mrs Heather Benson. Headteacher
