Oak Class Gaza Video link


Oak class did a project linked in with Tim Bennet's book "Overstrand in the Great War" and as part of the project were lucky enough to work with a BBC production team to create this amazing video.

And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

Hello there!

I’m Titus Cotton and I am very proud to be Head of the Belfry CEVA Primary School in Overstrand.

We are a small school with 136 pupils, situated in the seaside village of Overstrand, North Norfolk.

The original school dates back to 1830 and our current building was completed in 2006.

The children, their parents, the staff and the governors all work very hard to try and make the school the best that it can be. 

Values and Ethos

We have three mains aims and beliefs that help us all in settling into school:

I believe that “Happy Children Learn”.

The children have created their own ethos: “Be Fair, Share and Care”.

And as a Christian school we are centred around the theme of Grace: “All choices have consequences, and all pupils are valued unconditionally”.


Once settled and happy in school our focus on Learning is very much about “Ambition and Progress”.

Hopefully the website will give you a flavour of the school – if there is anything else that you would like to know then please do not hesitate to contact us!

Best wishes,
Titus Cotton, Headteacher
