Welcome to Pakefield Primary School


  Welcome to Pakefield Primary School, I hope you will find our website interesting and informative.

As the new Headteacher of Pakefield, I am thrilled and privileged to be able to work with such wonderful children and a dedicated, hard working team.

I am extremely excited to lead the school forward into the next part of its journey and continue to develop the schools strong reputation as a caring school where children are at the heart of all we do.

Pakefield Primary School has an inclusive ethos and we treat all children as individuals in order for them to become creative and talented adults.  Children love coming to school as learning is exciting and relevant.   Staff and children consistently have high expectations of each other, which in turn assists the school community in achieving success and making progress.

If you have any questions then please get in touch.

Best Wishes


Mr Martyn Payne

Sustrans/Bike It

Sustrans is a Sustainable Transport Charity that is enabling people to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys. As part of the Bike It project I am working together with the staff and pupils at Pakefield Primary to enthuse everybody to cycle, scoot or walk to school as often as they can.

Over the next year we will be running a range of activities including: free bike maintenance classes; cycle games; Dr Bike events and classroom based sessions that everyone can get involved in.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer your time to the project please don't hesitate to get in touch.
