Welcome to Wells Primary and Nursery School website

I hope this website provides you with an insight into our school. If you would like to visit the school during the working day please contact the school office and speak to Mrs Cox.
Please note that due to our rapidly increasing numbers early communication with us and Norfolk County Council regarding a place for your child / children is advised.

Every New Year it is customary to review the past twelve months and look forward to the year ahead. It has been, without doubt a very successful 2016 for Alderman Peel High School and Wells Primary and Nursery School. Results once again improved, (for the fifth year in a row at APHS), our numbers increased again in both schools, we have built a Cluster Support Centre for all children and families within our cluster to benefit from and all of our children continue to make excellent progress in the ever changing world of education. Our work across the schools has been strengthened even further. Subject leaders meet regularly and plan how the new curriculum can be implemented from 4 year olds through to sixteen year olds to ensure everything is covered and there is no repetition. We have a new Chair of Governors in Chris Beek and we have also recruited additional governors who have added to our skill set as a group.
2017 will be an exciting year for us as we move towards joining with a Multi Academy Trust. It is clear to all that the government want all schools to academise and that schools need to be part of something bigger in order to maximise financial benefits such as joint purchasing. We are in a very strong position in that because of our success and continuous improvement, as a federation which we can choose who to join with and the nature of the merger. Without doubt the ethos and philosophy of our schools in our federation will not change; neither will our inclusive approach to education or our high expectations. The demands placed upon teachers is higher than ever but our wonderful team of staff are simply the strongest we have had and they are up for the challenge. It is a real privilege to work with such a dedicated and forward thinking team.
