Welcome from the Principal
Norwich Primary Academy is one of the largest primaries in Norwich with about 350 children.
We have two classes per year from Reception to Year 6. We provide a knowledge-rich curriculum and aim for the best results for children.
Our curriculum is engaging to the children, but with a high focus on English and maths. In Years 1 and 2 we teach maths using the very successful methods pioneered in Singapore. When children are learning to read, we teach phonics through the Read Write Inc. programme which gives children a strong base to understand text. Every child is given the opportunity to learn an instrument.
We are different from most schools with an extended day for Years 3 to 6. We provide free enrichment activities for children from the end of the school day through to 4.30pm, Tuesday to Thursday. These include swimming, cookery, music tuition, fun science, dance, golf, and more.
We have a large site with a huge outside area - including woodland for investigating the outside environment, a playing field for games, and lots of play equipment for fun at break and lunch.
I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
