Official opening of the outdoor library space.

Posted on Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

We have officially opened our outdoor library space with Abbie cutting the ribbon. The idea for an outdoor library space was Abbie’s when she was in Y3 and Mrs. Donald designed and led the project. The outdoor library space has been called Emma’s Surf Shack in memory of Mrs. Donald’s daughter Emma.

Academy Consultation

Posted on Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

West Norfolk Academies Trust

Last night we held a Parent’s Meeting with Mr. Johnson from West Norfolk Academies Trust as part of the academy consultation. Mr. Johnson and Mrs. Arterton (West Norfolk Academies Trust) explained how the trust operates and their vision for the children within it. Mr. Johnson then answered questions raised and from the floor.

Conversion to an academy has to be signed off by the Secretary of State for Education once the consultations and due diligence checks have been completed. Providing everything goes to plan, Gaywood Primary should become an academy on the 1st June, 2017 and join the West Norfolk Academies Trust.

The questions and responses can be found in the attached file below.

Google Expeditions

Posted on Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Today we have Google visiting us with their Google Expeditions roadshow. The children are able to visit places that they wouldn’t be able to go on a usual school trip. The Y6 children are currently sat deep in the Amazonian Rainforest and are about to be whisked away to visit the Mayan Temples. Judging by the buzz they all seem to be enjoying it!

Letter Join Handwriting

Posted on Friday, October 14th, 2016


As a school we have invested in a new handwriting scheme that is in operation across the whole school, from Reception to Year 6. We would encourage parents to use the style in the attached documents with their children at home.

The scheme can be accessed both on a laptop and a tablet. Please follow the login instructions contained in the file below. The website provides demonstrations on how to form the letters correctly and how to make the joins. Please have a look with your child and why not have a go yourselves?
