Welcome to Bures CEVC Primary School
Excellence is at the heart of our village school.
We have high expectations of all at Bures: pupils, parents, staff and governors.
Within a strong Christian ethos we believe in growing caring, creative, curious and cultured members of society. We nurture a special interest in every pupil within our innovative curriculum: whether it be an academic, sporting, artistic or musical passion.
We believe in Having a Go and Never Giving Up.
A message from our Headteacher.
Bures Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School is a warm, inviting village school set in the heart of historic Bures. It is our aim to ensure that every child receives the education that they deserve. Our school vision, summed up by our motto Never Give Up, encapsulates well that which we are aiming to accomplish.
Here at Bures academic excellence goes hand in hand with personal success. Be it an interest in sport, music, or art we want all children to grow to be well rounded individuals.
