The school had to close as it had no water.
A spokesman said it affected areas in swaffham, Little Dunham, Great Dunham, Ashill, Sporle and North Pickenham. Some customers had no water, some had low pressure and some would have a normal service.
The main was isolated by 7.15am to ensure there was no leaking.
