Fleggburgh is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School. Voluntary Controlled means that the Diocesan Council for Education has some responsibility, but the school is controlled and funded by Norfolk Local Authority.
The school was built in 1866 and is an attractive Victorian building with some decorative brickwork and original features.
At present there are forty six children on roll. This means that they are rarely taught in groups larger than thirteen.
The school serves Fleggburgh, Billockby and Clippesby. We draw children from a wide area, with some children on roll from Filby, Ormesby, Caister and Stokesby.
Fleggburgh is part of the Acle cluster of schools and most children move to Acle High School after Year 6. Some children move to Flegg High School or Caister High School. Parents are of course, free to state preference for a high school of their choice.
Ethos and Values
The historic foundation of this school links us to the Church of England Diocese of Norwich. We aim to develop and preserve its religious character, in partnership with the Church in the Parish and the Diocese.
The school encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experiences it offers to all its learners.
Following Jesus’ example of LOVE we are a tolerant, forgiving and inclusive community dedicated to the intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical development of every child, enabling them to realise their own amibitions and achieve as well as each of them can. We help every child to become caring, responsible and generous members of the World, who are proud of their own and others’ achievements.
