Welcome from David Sandford, Headteacher.

Burrough Green C of E Primary School is a small school with a strong Christian ethos in the heart of the village of Burrough Green, 6 miles south of Newmarket in beautiful, open countryside. We are proud of our historical roots as one of the oldest schools in Cambridgeshire, but we are also a forward-looking school with fantastic facilities in our modern school building.  

We are a friendly and welcoming school with kindness as our foundation. Our Christian Values, that interweave so much with British Values, underpin life at our school. We take every opportunity to embrace these values of, justice, forgiveness, trust, compassion, responsibility and hope.

Our curriculum is written to broaden children’s horizons and a love of learning. We promote the ‘being of a subject’ – being geographers, being scientists – so children can fully immerse themselves in their learning. We make the most of our rural setting, but we aim to equally reflect the diversity of the modern world in which we live.

Guided by our shared Christian ethos, we work together to provide a happy, loving and nurturing environment where all are confident to fulfil their hopes and aspirations.  We endeavour to motivate and inspire everyone to become lifelong, resilient and enthusiastic learners in an ever-changing world.

Our ‘Larks and Owls’ provide wrap-around-care for working parents from 7.30am to 6.00pm and are run by members of our school staff.

We would love to welcome you and your child into our school community. If you would like to visit us, please get in touch and see for yourselves!
