At Bures we are committed to teaching a broad and balanced curriculum that is engaging and motivating. We aim to provide memorable learning experiences that the children need to develop key skills, concepts and knowledge so that they are independent and aspirational learners.

Underpinned by our school values, we provide a wide range of opportunities to enrich learning. We ensure they are all provided with the teaching and nurture they need. Our aim is to help all children to become curious, resilient learners who relish new experiences and challenges.

Units of study provide exciting and engaging learning opportunities so that children are curious to explore the various aspects within each subject area. Subjects are taught discretely, whilst relationships are made between concepts to build schemata.
We consider enrichment activities to be an important aspect of a child’s learning. Throughout the year, children take part in a variety of enrichment activities.  These include: workshops, educational visits, competitions and performances. We know we have succeeded when children leave the school with the skills and confidence to reflect, make decisions, and continue on their journey of lifelong learning.
