Great Massingham CE Primary catchment consultation

Closed 20 Oct 2023

Opened 11 Sep 2023



On 4th December 2023 the Executive Director of Children’s Services, Sara Tough, agreed  that from 1 January 2024, all children from the Weasenham area will be in catchment for Great Massingham.  This is due to;

  • The Secretary of State’s decision to close Weasenham CE Primary Academy
  • Pupil forecasts for Weasenham CE Primary Academy are low and there is sufficient space at Great Massingham CE Primary School should parents prefer this school.  Great Massingham currently serves the neighbouring catchment area


Norfolk County Council is proposing to extend the catchment area of Great Massingham CE Primary School, to include the parish of Weasenham, from 1 January 2024.

Our proposal is linked to a proposal from DNEAT; to merge Weasenham CE Primary Academy with Brisley CE Primary Academy from 1 January 2024. Full details of this proposal can be found at the bottom of this page.

The proposal to merge Weasenham CE Primary Academy has an impact on the catchment area for children from the area, in the future.  Norfolk County Council is proposing to change the Weasenham catchment area, by including it into the catchment area of Great Massingham.

We have discussed this proposal with the headteacher and the governors at Great Massingham CE Primary School.  The pupil forecasts for Weasenham are low and the Council feel there will be space at Great Massingham for pupils within the new catchment area, subject to parental preference.

Why your views matter

We want to hear your views on our proposal.
