Reepham Primary School is set in an attractive historic market town and was first opened in 1883. The school building has been extend over the years and now has 7 classrooms and a multi purpose Drama Studio. There are currently 210 pupils aged 4-11 with one class for each year group.
The school has a well equipped computer suite and computers in every classroom. We have a large library to which the children have daily access. At the back of the school is a playground and large sports’ field which is used throughout the day. The Friends of RPS have funded a ‘Trim Track’ on the school field which the children use at break and lunchtimes. We have recently developed a vegetable garden and Story Circle and renovated the Wildlife Garden. This term the children have designed and built an outside oven and den in our new outside classroom.
We have close links to Reepham Rascals which is an independently run Out of School Club which uses our school site and provides care for local children with breakfast and after school care.
We welcome visits to the school but please look at our prospectus and vision to learn much more about us and also visit the Gallery to see lots of views of the school and school activities. You can also find out more about the Governors, the School Council, the School Nutrition Action Group (SNAG), the School Land Use Group (SLUG), the Eco-Action Team and the wide range of clubs.
Our curriculum vision (June 2011):
Our curriculum will be:
A flexible whole school curriculum which gives real purpose to learning and encourages independent thinking and application of skills.
A fun and engaging curriculum which supports, extends and challenges all learners.
An exciting and relevant curriculum which uses creative ways of working and utilises all available resources.
A curriculum which values and is enhanced by relationships with the local and wider community.
“The good curriculum provides many interesting experiences for them to write about and use their imagination (and) gives pupils many opportunities to extend their personal and social skills as well as knowledge skills and understanding in different subjects. These stem from trips to places of interest and a wide range of visitors who come to school” Ofsted May 2011
