A warm welcome from Primary East. Our teaching school alliance is made up of a core of 6 strategic partnership schools/alliances, supported and strengthened by a large number of partner schools who work with and through us to provide a diverse and broad base of expertise
Through our partnership with all schools in the alliance, we are pleased to be able to support teaching and learning, in the primary phase, across South Norfolk, North Suffolk and beyond. One of our particular specialisms is in supporting small rural primary schools. However, we are growing our range of partner schools, so that we can now cater for the diverse needs of all primary schools in the region.

If you would like to find out more about our services, have a specific query or are interested in working in partnership with us, then please contact us.
A teaching school alliance is only as successful as the committment of the partner schools to working in collaboration. At Primary East all of the partner schools sign up to the Terms of Reference which support an honest and transparent approach to Primary East Membership.
We are proud of our school, and all the children and staff who work within it.
Everyone has a role to play in the life of the school, and we celebrate the gifts which each individual brings to the school community every day.
We promote spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and social development of pupils, based on the Christian principles of love, service and tolerance.
We aim to produce outstanding citizens through the stimulating learning environment we provide, where the needs of the learners are at the heart of every decision we make.
We are a happy, progressive, primary school situated in the rural Suffolk town of Eye, which is five miles from Diss, Norfolk, and twenty five miles East of Bury St. Edmunds.
We believe in celebrating achievement, and fostering in children an intrinsic motivation to learn about the world around them, equipping them to become responsible citizens in the world, and life-long learners.
This will include aiming to:
At Pulham School our motto is ‘I am unique, together we are awesome’. We are a community of learners and we foster an ethos of mutual expectations, trust and respect between pupils and staff where both feel they have a voice and that voice is listened to and acted upon. In our school teachers and children invest emotionally and intellectually in their learning and each person is valued, nobody is written off, and children and adults do not have a ceiling imposed upon their learning. Teachers and children participate in and have control of their learning, with a positive sense of themselves and a commitment to the learning opportunities provided for them. All children are given the opportunity to develop the capacity to surprise themselves and those around them.
Pupils are engaged in their learning because it is relevant to them and it is enriched with subject specific events and a joy in learning both inside and outside – through Forest Schools. We give all pupils the opportunity to experience high quality educational provision, through visits to acclaimed national institutions such as the Science Museum and the Tower of London and we go on residential to London and to the Peak District to widen children’s experiences of the world they live in and are part of.
We engage with our community through the Index for Inclusion and create an atmosphere where joy, love, hope, optimism, beauty, trust, compassion, honesty and courage can flourish in each and every member of our community.
