Welcome to Banham Primary School

We at Banham Community Primary School are proud that we help each individual child to be the best that they can be. We are lucky to have caring, friendly, committed staff, parents and governors. We want all our children to be happy, safe learners who try their best and enjoy achieving their goals and learning new skills.

In November 2016 we academised as part of the ‘Co-operative Education East’ Academy Trust and work closely with our Co-operative schools at Bunwell and Thompson.

We strongly encourage mums, dads and carers to take an active role in our school. The Friends of Banham School (FOBS) work tirelessly for the benefit of the pupils, and hold a variety of fundraising events throughout the year including a very successful Quiz Night and Summer Picnic. They have in recent years purchased IPads, staging, a Cycle Shelter and Scooter Rack for the school.

If you are interested in enrolling your child at our school we would be delighted to show you around and answer any queries you may have!
