Please call 01798 831502 and book a tour of the school.
I am delighted to welcome you to Bury CofE Primary School. This website aims to give you a snapshot of what life at Bury is all about, this however can never compare to seeing the school first-hand. If you are looking for a school rich in history, yet always forward thinking; book an appointment with Mrs Clark at the school office where I can arrange for some of our pupils to show you what it is like to be one of the STARs (Success, Teamwork, Aspiration, Respect, Resilience and Responsibility) at Bury.
If there is something that you cannot find on the website, please do not hesitate to get in touch - it will help us to improve our website. As with all of the children at Bury, we are all keen to learn and continuously improve.
The school is set in a fantastic location and we are always developing our curriculum to ensure that we take every advantage of this . We have links with the Church and those are reflected in our caring, loving Christian ethos based around the Christian values. Whilst we have a strong emphasis on ensuring the children leave Bury with excellent standards of English and Maths, we believe this is achieved through utilising the whole curriculum; providing those moments of awe and wonder that stimulate curiosity and a lifelong love of learning.
Bury is a small rural primary school educating children from 4 – 11. We put a great emphasis on truly knowing all our children and knowing the next steps required on their learning journey.
We have much smaller than average class sizes, ensuring the children are given quality time with their teacher and teaching assistant every day. Everyone here is incredibly proud of our school, so much so that the children decided to create a film (just above) to give you an insight into life here at Bury. We were also filmed by the South Downs National Park who were keen to share just what a special school Bury CofE Primary is. The video is just below. Have a look and see if what we offer here at Bury is the right place for your child.
Our hall look a little different today. Thanks to FOBS, we are being visited by Alice and Terry from @Observatory_Sci with their own dome. Inside, Kestrels are currently learning about the night sky, only given away by the ooohs and aahhs regularly drifting out of the dome!
Yesterday we had the teacher, Mr Roman from @ClassCover whilst Mrs Braun was out training. It was fantastic to receive a card from Mr Roman commenting on it being a 'joy to teach the class'. Excellent work Buzzards.
Buzzards are currently working on Christmas tunes on the recorder with Mr Mott.
A spotacular effort by everyone on Friday. The cake raffle raised over £100 for Children in Need and resulted in one very pleased Pudsey at school. Thank you to Mrs Youngs for our first cake - please get your name down to sign up for future weeks - funds going to sport coaching.
This evening's sports club are very excited with their new game - New Age Kurling
Buzzards and Little Owls buddied up for the walk to St John's this morning. When they got back, Little Owls showed Buzzards some of the things they like doing in their garden. Buzzards were very willing to join in!
The whole school paid its respects at today's remembrance service. Little Owls made a wreath which was placed on the memorial by our eldest and youngest children. We will remember them.
Buzzard Class will be selling poppies right up until next Friday. Please send your child in with their donation if they would like to support the cause.
From sitting down to write your first sentence to playing in a puddle. What a difference in 10mins in reception!
What a super Open Day. Thank you to our FOBS representatives for manning the tea and coffee and an even bigger thank you to Buzzard Class for their superb, and incredibly detailed, tours of the school. Have a great half term. Thanks to Ms Capel for the photo at the end of today.
