Proposal to amalgamate Mulbarton Infant School and Mulbarton Junior School into a single all-through primary school for pupils aged 4 - 11 from 1 September 2017

Since September 2013 Mulbarton Infant School and Mulbarton Junior School have been in a successful partnership.  The Governing Bodies of both schools now wish to take the next step and legally combine into a single school.

In order for this to happen, legal steps have to be taken.  Norfolk County Council will publish:

  • a proposalto extend the age range to take in pupils for 4 - 11 years of age at Mulbarton Infant School
  • at the same time, a proposal to close Mulbarton Junior School.

Norfolk County Council supports the Governing Bodies wish to create a single primary scool to be called Mulbarton Primary School, but we need to hear your views before a final decision is made. 

Comments on this initial consultation can be made by contacting the School Organisation Team (Bay 10, Floor 8, County Hall, Martineau Lane, Norwich, NR1 2DL), by email to or responding to this online survey.
