Is After School Club running?

Do the children come to school in PE kits on PE days?

Yes, starting from this week (but not Holly)

Does the school uniform remain as before?

Yes, including plain school shoes, no jewellery, plain stud earrings, etc https://www.overstrand.norfolk.sch.uk/norfolk/primary/overstrand/site/pages/newsandletters/schooluniform

Do parents and carers still drop off at the main door?


Even Holly children?

Yes. It worked so well and they settled in so easly during the stay and play days, so we will continue the drop off at the door. And remember, if your child gets a bit teary then 'drop-and-run'! We promise they will be fine! :) 

Are the children in bubbles?

The children are not required to be in bubbles. Classes are starting off with individual class playtime though, as it really helped everyone to get on and socialise. We will start mixing the classes’ playtimes again as the year progresses

Are the children still eating lunch in their classrooms?


Are parents leaving through the car park still?

Yes. That system worked very well too, so we are continuing with it.

And what about the children who handed in 10 Blue Cards but were away when the certifcates and the video happened?

All in hand! We will catch up with everyone during the first week if we can!

These are strange times and everyone in Britain is a bit anxious, but we know Happy Children Learn, and so we make sure play time is fun and free - I've no idea what games they are all playing but they are happy and creative and enjoying their childhood!

What to do if your child is poorly!

what to do !


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. 

Our strongly held belief is that  “Happy Children Learn”.

It underpins everything  we do: we believe that Happy Children Learn, and our vision for the school is Happy Children Learning.

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

Our Christian Value this half term is COMPASSION

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

Luke 2:40    King James Version 

Our Ofsted! Thank you to everyone who supports the school!
