Hello and welcome to our school website. Our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2015 said Great Massingham school was good in all areas.

Great Massingham is a Church of England School in the heart of a small village in North West Norfolk with a reputation for friendliness and a family-like atmosphere. Great Massingham C of E School is a happy place where we aim to help our children develop to become sociable and confident and to enjoy their work and do their best. We place great value on the close co-operation between parents and staff to ensure that every child achieves his or her potential and has the opportunity to develop their individual abilities and qualities.

We aim to develop and promote thoughtfulness and care for one another as core priorities. The Ofsted inspection in March 2015 judged the behaviour and safety of pupils to be good. The report states that 'pupils get on well with each other and are particularly good at working together in the mixed - age classes , willingly helping each other when adult support is not immediately available. They are polite and courteous.'

We teach a topic based curriculum which encompasses all subject areas. Literacy Mathematics and Science are taught separately and are linked to the topic and ‘real life' situations as much as possible. This has proved to be a very useful tool in improving the enthusiasm and motivation of the children and offering a broad and balanced education. Ofsted March 2015 said 'teaching is good throughout the school... there is consistency in the quality of teaching that results in all groups of pupils making good progress.'
