Our Christian Value this half term is FORGIVENESS

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

"...children ‘thoroughly enjoy’ coming to school every day and ‘thrive’ in the ‘can do,’ caring and supportive atmosphere you create for them...exceptional care and consideration": Ofsted Dec 2016

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. 

Vision, Values and Ethos

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

Our vision is that  “Happy Children Learn”.

It is our underlying ethos too; we believe that Happy Children Learn, and our vision is for the school is Happy Children Learning.

But where does this happiness come from? As a Christian school we are centred around the theme of Grace, perhaps best exemplified by the story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32). As a school we defined our understanding of Grace as, "All choices have consequences, and all pupils are valued unconditionally”.

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

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
