I would like to extend a warm welcome to our website from the pupils, staff and Governors of Catfield Cof 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.

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.
