Honington Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School provides primary education from the age of four to eleven, from the villages of Honington, Sapiston, Fakenham Magna and Troston and Honington RAF Station.
There are currently seven classes in the school, each one being for a single year intake. For some parts of the curriculum children may be combined in a group with children from other classes.
Children may start school in the September after their fourth birthday. They are entitled to attend full time. Many of our children attend First Steps Day Care Centre at RAF Honington with whom we have a close relationship. Arrangements are made for the children and their parents to visit the school prior to commencing full-time education.
We welcome new children at any time in the school year. There will be an opportunity to visit the classrooms, meet the child’s new teacher and purchase uniforms. On arriving at the school you will be helped to become familiar with the school environment and routines.
Many children bring their records with them so that their integration may be effected swiftly into activities appropriate to their ability. When children leave we send their records to their next school as soon as possible.
Suffolk County Council provides a bus for children who live in Troston. This bus is available for the use of children from RAF Honington as a cost of 50p each way, payable to the driver. On arrival at school a member of staff will meet the bus. At the end of the day staff will escort the children onto the bus.
Children coming with parents should arrive at school no earlier than 8.50am ready to start at 9.00am and are collected from the external classroom doors at 3.15pm at the end of the school day. It is important that staff know how your child is getting home so we ask you to inform us of any change to the normal routine.

We make this happen through the attention we pay to the different groups of children in our school, thus providing a learning environment that enables ALL pupils to make the greatest progress and achieve their full potential in a caring, supportive and fully inclusive environment.
