School Description

The school is larger than the average-sized junior school and is situated in the northern part of Norwich. The majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds. Most pupils are admitted from the two local infant schools and live within the immediate locality. The school is housed in the original secondary school building for Hellesdon, which was built in 1937. The school was subsequently changed into a middle school and was then restructured into a junior school in 2007, as part of the Norfolk reorganisation programme. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils eligible for the pupil premium (which is additional government funding used to support pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after) is below the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below the national average. In September 2014, the headteacher from the local Hellesdon High Academy was seconded to lead as executive headteacher of the school. A head of school and heads of year were subsequently appointed. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. The school has recently set up a ‘Rainbow Room’ to help meet the needs of its disabled pupils.
