Welcome to Bures CEVC Primary School


Together we experience every day as an exciting adventure that never stops.

We treasure time close to home but are ready to expand our horizons, exploring beliefs, visiting different lands, and celebrating cultures. We discover characters who have made a difference, both great and small.  Side by side we wrestle with mathematical monsters and scientific beasts. We create the unimagined – works of pure beauty. We savour the victory when we accomplish each quest before moving on to the next. We learn to fight the fear of failure and joyfully celebrate every success.

At Bures, we dare to dream big – embracing the adventure within.

‘I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus.’

Philippians 3 v 14
