About the School

At Bunwell Primary School we believe in creating a safe, happy and healthy environment where children can feel positive about themselves and the school. Everyone is encouraged to value and respect one another and the environment. Through our broad, balanced and creative curriculum we ensure high standards of teaching and learning that enable all pupils to reach their full potential. We are committed to providing teaching and learning experiences that are enjoyable, challenging and relevant to the needs of each individual.

The school staff are strongly committed to each child, providing for, and supporting each individual throughout their education.  We believe the children should move on to the next stage of their education, with confidence, demonstrating high level of skills in reading, writing and maths.

We also believe that parents have a very important role to play in the education of their children and we actively encourage close co-operation between home and school. We value and build on the experience and knowledge which pupils bring from their home lives, and we hope that you will share with us in making the children’s time at Bunwell School enjoyable and successful.

After a week of settling back in to the new term, the governors, staff and I have turned our focus as to how we can continue to develop the school and move things forward. We are going to introduce a few initiatives this term to try to provide the young people with more opportunities to earn rewards and to work with pupils from across the whole age range of the school. I have outlined some of these changes below and in the coming weeks, parents and carers will have an opportunity to get involved as well.

A quick reminder that we will be tweeting information regularly from the @bunwell_primary twitter account and it will ultimately be one of the main ways of sending you information quickly. Please follow us if you are able, or just ask if you need any help to sign up.
