The school continues to follow guidance from Public Health England and the Government, continues to be cleaned using the strongest detergents and is safe to operate. 

We urge all parents to follow the below guidance issued from the government regarding delaying the spread of the virus:

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

** a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

** a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

The current guidance states that the whole household should self-isolate for a period of 14 days from the first symptom - regardless if other family members at symptom free.

Visit the NHS Website for full advice: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ 

Or the government website here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

We are urging all parents to ensure they can log in to our school app - SchoolPing.  This is where we will send any urgent updates in the event that we are asked to close the school.


Connected.       Progressive.       Determined.

A welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Dersingham Primary School.  Our website aims to give you a snapshot of our school, as well as providing important information for the whole school community.  We hope that you enjoy your visit and find the website informative and helpful.

As a school, we are committed to providing the very very best learning opportunities for your child in a safe, secure and friendly community environment.  As part of my commitment to raising standards, we are excited to deliver a bespoke curriculum linked to the full statutory national curriculum.  All pupils at Dersingham will have the opportunity to learn to speak a language, learn to play an instrument, learn to swim and to visit many places of interest.  Preparing pupils for life in Modern Britain and the demands of the 21st Century is a key focus.  This means that we have a strong emphasis on using technology as a learning tool and that all of our children have access to a range of technology, including the use of netbooks and tablets.

There is no limit on how well all pupils can achieve.   I have the highest expectations for all of our children, and as a school, we expect them to aim high and to achieve their full potential.  I feel it is important that pupils at Dersingham achieve academically as well as developing their personal and social skills, both in and out of school.  I, together with my staff, have a strong belief in good behaviour and good manners with an emphasis on caring for each other and taking on responsibility.  We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find it informative and helpful.  If you would like to arrange a visit to our school, please contact the main office.

    The children have been writing their suggested names for our new school rabbit all week. This morning we chose a name in assembly and that name is... BUDDY! This name was suggested by Hadiyah in Class 8. On behalf of the school, I would like to say a massive thank you for the effort that you and your children made in making today a very special World Book Day - the children look amazing! Check out out school website at the end of today for photos.

    Good Morning, I'd like to introduce you to our new school pet (rabbit)! The children were able to meet him this morning during their assembly. As part of World Book Day, we're giving the children an opportunity to name him. On Wednesday, his name will be announced in assembly with the winner receiving a prize. REMINDER - World book day is on Thursday. Parents, you are invited to our reading cafe in the morning - please encourage your children to dress up as a character from Alice in Wonderland. On some occasions, our rabbit will meet and greet you in the morning and afternoon, when he does, please stay calm so not to frighten him. We're all very excited!!
