Welcome to the Pilgrim Federation of Church of England Primary Schools and thank you for visiting us!
The Ofsted rating for all four Federation Schools is GOOD. For further information and to download the September 2016 Ofsted Report for Blakeney CE VA Primary School please go to our Performance page.
The four primary schools of Blakeney, Hindringham, Kelling and Walsingham federated in April 2013 under the leadership of one governing body, myself as Executive Headteacher and a Deputy Headteacher who leads on Teaching and Learning.
The Christian values of love and compassion for others, kindness, tolerance and respect are at the heart of our learning journey together as The Pilgrim Federation.
The schools work together to provide the best possible education for every child. Each school retains its own unique identity, yet benefits from collaborative working.
We regularly organise events which bring the children together to widen their learning experiences and opportunities.
The staff share their strengths and skills and have greater opportunities to develop their professional expertise. This has a direct impact on the quality of teaching and learning and enables us to deliver an exciting and relevant curriculum for all of our children as we believe that learning should be creative, innovative, inspiring and irresistible!
Through our shared vision, staff, parents, governors, children and the local community all play their part in our learning and in achieving excellence in everything we do.
If you would like to find out more about us then visits to any or all of our four schools are warmly welcomed.
