Thank you for visiting our website. We hope the information available here will be useful to existing parents, and to those who are looking to bring their children to Barnby & North Cove Primary School and Nursery.
Barnby & North Cove Primary School and Nursery is a very popular and successful village primary school situated on the border of Suffolk and Norfolk, a short distance from the market town of Beccles, the stunning beaches of the most easterly region of England and very locally, the beautiful nature reserves of North Cove and Carlton Colville. Our school has over 100 pupils, each unique and important. Our dedicated and talented staff are committed to ensuring our pupils have the best education possible, through a broad and diversified curriculum, leadership initiatives and extra-curricular activities.
Our partner school, Glebeland Primary at Toftmonks is a mere 15 minutes drive; we share as many learning opportunities, staffing, educational resources and fun as we possibly can, including our curriculum, residential trips and educational visits. Together we are called 'The Borders Partnership'.
We are one big family at The Borders, children really enjoy coming together to extend their school friendships and staff value the collaborative working which our partnership offers. We learn and play together; our older children look out for our younger children and provide exemplary examples of learning behaviour for the littles to learn from. We are lucky to have an abundance of outdoor learning space for children to enjoy. Barnby & North Cove is a very happy school where the children, staff and visitors love to attend.
If you would like to find out more about us please call or email to make an appointment. I look forward to showing you around our lovely school.
