Welcome to Caston VA Primary School


Welcome to our school, Caston VA Primary School. The school is located in the village of Caston, just outside Watton off the main A1075 Thetford to Watton Road and between the villages of Griston and Stow Bedon.

Caston Primary School is a Voluntary Aided School and has a strong Christian ethos. We have high standards of behaviour in all aspects of school life and encourage Christian values of kindness, honesty and care and consideration for others.

The school accepts children from the ages of 4 to 11 years (Reception to Year 6) and a Mums and tots group (Little Friends) runs twice a week on our site (see tab on main menu for further information).

At Caston VA Primary School all children are valued, encouraged and supported to achieve the best that they can, and families are highly valued as partners in their children’s education.

The dedication and teamwork of the Staff, Governors and Friends of the School, as well as the very valued support of the parents and local community means that we have a school which is forward thinking working to secure a positive future for our small village primary school.

On our journey of improvement following our Federation with Parkers Primary School at Saham Toney, we are pleased that HMI have noted

‘Pupils are more ready to learn … they are polite and well mannered and are eager to show visitors the work they are doing.  They have a pride in their work which was not evident before.  Attitudes to learning have improved and as a result pupils have the opportunity to make better progress.  Pupils now enjoy coming to school because they find it a more stimulating and challenging environment’. 

We hope that you will find all the information that you need on this website, but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us, either by phone or email and we will be pleased to help in any way we can. Please see the ‘contact tab’ for further details.
