Welcome to Birchwood Primary School

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 individually 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. Pupils enter the school in Reception with broadly average achievement. As a result the quality of education, pupils exit Birchwood with achievement above that of their peers nationally.
  • We are ambassadors in the key areas in which we excel. We hold the Eco Green Flag School for the 7th year running. We hold the PE Quality Mark with distinction and have been the Suffolk School of Sporting Excellence 2016 and 2018. We have achieved the Food for Life Partnership GOLD award (one of only 15 in the country). We have an onsite Forest School to name but a few.
  • We offer a plethora of clubs and activities at different times of the day. Our staff team research and embrace new initiatives to enhance opportunities further still.


Our vision statement underpins all that we do


"Passionate about learning"
