Coronavirus / Covid-19 – important information
In line with government advice, OBPS&N will be closed to the majority of children from Monday 23rd March. We will be offering provision to those children of key workers as identified by the government, as well as children with certain needs. Please see our Coronavirus section for more information.

Important: if you have a concern about the wellbeing of a child during the closure period, you should contact the Norfolk Children’s Advice and Duty Service (CADS) team on 0344 800 8020, or the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000.

This is a challenging situation for all of us, but we will keep you updated as best we can on our website, on our Twitter page, and via Parentmail. Thank you for your support.



We are a rural community primary school situated in the village of Old Buckenham, Norfolk. As a primary school we have always catered for the age range 4 to 11, a seven year educational span, however in August 2018 we took on Buckenham Pre-School Group to extend our age range from 2 years old. We are therefore now a joint Primary and Nursery School. We have seven classes: one for each academic year, which enables us to deliver the EYFS and National Curriculum to classes containing single age ranges.The school was opened in 1963 and has been extended considerably since then. We are particularly proud of our outstanding grounds including, two playgrounds, a wildlife area with pond, a vast games’ field, international arboretum, amphitheatre, tunnel and mound, an adventure playground and an exciting and stimulating outdoor learning area for our youngest children. We are very lucky to have such a fantastic space for the children.Due to our close proximity we have very strong links with both Old Buckenham High School and Chapel Green Special School, enabling us to work closely together.We also offer a range of trips and clubs which provide and promote opportunities for children to discover their talents.Executive Headteacher – Julia Humphrey
