The present school dates back to the 1847. Since then many additions have happened including new classrooms and remodelling of the interior and grounds of the school to make it modern and appealing.

We admit children from Colkirk, Oxwick, Pudding Norton and Fakenham.

We have links with our local preschool Colkirk Preschool and also take children from Ladybirds, Little Angels and Fakenham Children’s Day Care Centre. We also have a link with the Children's Centre in Fakenham.

In September 2014, the school entered into a Federation agreement with Sculthorpe CE VA Primary and West Raynham CE VA Primary Schools (forming the Unity Federation of Church Schools). Little Snoring Community Primary Academy also joined the Federation in August 2018.

All schools are managed by one Executive Headteacher. Mr C Allen divides his time between the two schools. Each school has Head of School; this person is in charge when Mr Allen is off-site.
