Due to reduced staffing capacity and social distancing requirements - caused by COVID-19 - we are unable to provide a safe environment for pupils at this time. The school is currently closed to most pupils, including those with a designated place.

If you are a key worker and you cannot care for your child, please contact the Local Authority at 0344 800 8020.

We will be offering critical key worker places after the Easter Holidays on a first come, first served basis.

Places are very limited due to staffing levels and social distancing regulations.

If you wish to be considered for a place please contact office@howard-jun.norfolk.sch.uk stating your child’s name, what your critical key worker role is and why you don’t have any current childcare provision.

We will also be offering places to a few vulnerable pupils under strict criteria.

All applications will be considered on merit and we will contact successful applicants to inform them of their allocated place.



"Together Everyone Achieves More"


Our school motto is Together Everyone Achieves More. I personally feel that this summarises our school, one which is at the ‘heart’ of the local community. A vibrant learning hub where everyone is welcomed and supported. A school where children are instilled with a life long love of learning.

Howard Junior School (Academy) is proud of all the wonderful day to day achievements that our pupils make. Each one is celebrated. I do hope if you visit our school, you can see by the children’s smiles and enjoyment of their academic pursuits, what a great school Howard Junior School is.

We are firmly committed to equality for all and an ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda. Our vision is to empower students to accelerate and personalise their learning by enabling them to effectively engage and collaborate with their peers, their community and the real world through the use of technology.

Our last OFSTED report rated the school as GOOD, I do hope you will kindly take the time to read it.

Many thanks,

Mr Gregory L. Hill
