The shortlist contains five nominations for Oulton Broad Primary School, including Educational Setting of the Year and Excellence in Middle Leadership.
Headteacher Jamie White said: 'We're really proud of all the children and staff at school and we will always keep working hard to improve outcomes for all the pupils in Lowestoft.
