Head Teacher's Welcome
On behalf of the children, staff, governors and whole school community I'd like to warmly welcome you to Birchwood Primary School. We are extremely proud of all that goes on at Birchwood.
We value every child and ensure that we foster the individuality of their interests and experiences. Our curriculum is carefully planned to enable us to teach in a creative and inspiring way. We know this educational philosophy works well and is constantly adapting to the needs of all children in school because;
- Outcomes for pupils are excellent e.g. in 2015 Birchwood was joint 30th top performing primary school in England (Daily Telegraph January 2016)
- Our curriculum journey has led us to become ambassadors in key areas we excel e.g. Eco Ambassador School for Eastern region 2015-17, Suffolk School of Sporting Excellence 2016 - Association for PE Quality Mark with distinction, we are delighted to receive the accolade of Food for Life Partnership GOLD award (one of only 15 in the country), onsite Forest School to name but a few.
- We offer an extensive range of additional clubs, activities and support and extension programmes for children to participate in, and our staff team constantly research and embrace new initiatives.
Our vision statement underpins all that we do
Passionate about learning”
