Bures Church of England Primary School is a school for boys and girls from 3 – 11 years of age and is maintained by Suffolk County Council. We have a published admission number (PAN) of 30. Should this number be exceeded, we will follow the Local Authority (LA) set criteria for admission when offering places.

Our Nursery class can accommodate up to 18 children who are admitted during the academic year in which they turn 4. The Nursery class meet from 9.00 – 12.00 pm. However, working alongside Bures Noah’s Ark Nursery Group, we are now able to offer a Nursery provision package from 7.30am to 4.30pm, providing an excellent combination of teacher-led, adventurous learning experiences in school and fun-packed play-centred activities in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum at Noah’s in the afternoon.
