Ormesby Village Infant School History 


Our current school was built in 1989. 

Ormesby County First School, Spruce Avenue, was opened on September 6th, 1989 by the children and Mr. A. J. Key, Chairman of School Governors. Both Ormesby County First School and Ormesby County Middle School have their origins in the lovely old County Primary School on the Village Green. 

During the early 1970s the Juniors moved to their new school building, leaving the Infants in the School on the Green. At reorganisation in 1978 the Infant Department became Ormesby County First School and the Junior Department became Ormesby County Middle School.


Village development continued and the children, staff, parents and governors were thrilled to see the long awaited Ormesby County First School take shape on Spruce Avenue, providing the village with a purpose-built First School for our young children, and one situated with a field, playground and many new facilities. 

Then in September 2007 the school was re-organised into Ormesby Village Infant School.

 School Grounds and Buildings 

We are very proud of our school, the buildings and grounds. Purpose buit in 1989, it has changed quite substantially since then! Building extensions have taken place to accommodate the increased demand for places and to facilitate the expanding role of ICT in the curriculum. Classroom, cloakroom, hall and playground makeovers have modernised and freshened the working and play environment. We also have on site a mobile for our pre-school children. 

 The Playground and Field

We are very lucky to have a lovely playground and a playing field. Our Trim Trail is great fun for balancing and climbing. There are also different things to choose at playtime -skipping ropes, quoits and lots more.
