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.

There will be two sessions from 9.30am – 10.30am and 10.45am – 11.45am. During this time there will be activities in which to participate, encouraging the development of confidence and responsibility, a healthy, safer lifestyle and the development of good relations. This is an important part of our participation in the Suffolk Healthy Schools Programme for which we have received National Healthy Schools Accreditation. We hope as many parents or carers as possible will be able to work with their child on this occasion.
