Primary School


The school building with grass field in front. The school building mainly consists of three almost separate buildings, two of which are joined by a walkway/corridor. It’s a nice sunny bright day and there are numerous trees surrounding the building visible behind it.

Walsham-le-Willows is a Voluntary Controlled Primary School, catering for children aged 4 – 11 years.   The school has five classrooms, a library and a hall. The hall is used for PE lessons, for group work, and for lunchtimes.

The school has an environmental area containing a pond, wild life area and the opportunity for use as an outside classroom. The area is fenced and locked so children can only gain access with an adult.  The school is lucky to be very well resourced.

The school is also fortunate to have large grounds, consisting of a large sports field, grassy play areas, mature trees and a hard play area, a willow tunnel and wooden play equipment.

The children are actively involved in planting, growing and harvesting various vegetables in the five raised beds within the grounds one of which was provided by the Walsham Open Gardens committee and this allows access to the gardening area by children in wheelchairs.  All the children  delight in the experience this offers then to grow and eat their own produce.

Caterpillar Class (Early Years) have their own outside area, which includes a playhouse, easels, water and sand trays.  It is used as an extension of the classroom whenever possible.  A canopy also provides cover to allow free-flow outdoor learning whatever the weather.
