Catfield Church of England Primary School


I would like to extend a warm welcome to our website from the pupils, staff and Governors of Catfield C of E (VC) Primary School. Since September 2013 our school has been part of the Swallowtail Federation of Church Schools when we linked formally with both Sutton and Hickling Infant Schools.


Our school, which was built in 1853 is situated in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, on the edge of the village of Catfield. We are a small school but  a very happy and busy school. We have a beautiful outside space which includes a field and garden area where we grow our own vegetables.


At Catfield School we aim to provide a stimulating and fun environment where quality teaching and learning takes place every day – we put our children at the heart of everything we do. We provide a safe and happy community where everyone, children and adults, can expect respect, encouragement and support. We are an inclusive school and we ensure all pupils are included in school life, whatever their age, ability, disability or ethnic background.


Our pupils are proud of their school and this is reflected in their high standards of work, behaviour and attainment. We are a small  hardworking and dedicated team at Catfield School, committed to ensuring our school continues to strive for excellence. We are very proud to be a vital part of our local community.

Catfield – Caring and Achieving Together    

Catfield School aims to ensure that:   


  • there are high standards of achievement for all children
  • there are high standards of behaviour across the school
  • children develop high aspirations for their future

  • there is a happy and caring environment in which all children feel safe and can express their individuality
  • the achievements of children and adults in all areas of learning and life skills are recognised and celebrated
  • each child realises and responds to his/her own spirituality by learning within a Christian ethos.
  • each person is valued regardless of gender, ability, religion and cultural background
  • there is a good partnership between school and the children’s families.
  • there are good links with the community and that school becomes a valuable part of village life.
  • there are good links with neighbouring schools, the Preschool and other organisations to extend and enhance learning opportunities for pupils and staff.

We strongly encourage all prospective parents to visit our school and see the pupils and staff at work. Please contact the school office to make an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
