Development of a brand new primary school and nursery is well under way in Attleborough with work due to be completed at the end of the year.

The 630-place primary school will provide classrooms, a central library, a multi-purpose hall and dining hall and spacious corridors.

The 52-place nursery will provide two nursery rooms with toilet facilities, along with a shared kitchen and administration areas.

Will Bishop, Contracts Manger at R G Carter, is delighted to see this unique project come together, saying:

“We are delighted to be able to provide two exceptional facilities that will serve Norfolk’s ever-growing population which will positively impact the local community for years to come.”

Along with the innovative designs incorporating zinc standing seam roofs, both buildings will benefit from solar panels, sustainable swales drainage with external areas including a food-growing garden, Korfball pitch and an FA & Sport England Specification U13 football pitch.

R G Carter has donated equipment to the art department and is running a poster competition for their hoarding open to pupils at Attleborough Infants School.

The project is part of a county-wide programme by Norfolk County Council to create more local school places in growing communities, better education facilities for more of the county’s children and, where possible, all-through primary schools across Norfolk.
