Bedfield Primary School
‘Brave Curious Determined’
Bedfield Primary School is a small, rural village school which currently has around 40 children on roll. It is situated close to the market town of Framlingham and is part of a group of seven schools in the Debenham High School catchment area. The school is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School. Pupils visit the Church of St Nicholas Bedfield for Harvest Festivals and Christmas Services, and as part of some curriculum activities.
The School prides itself on being welcoming and nurturing to families of all faiths and backgrounds! Staff and governors are proud of their pupils, helping them to achieve their goals, face new challenges and believe in their own, unique potential. There is a friendly family ethos, and the school is supported by an enthusiastic set of parents and a warm, caring local community.
The school first opened its doors to 'the children of the poor' on 3rd May 1864 with the Lord Bishop of Norwich doing the honours. Total cost for the school and teachers was £400!
Bedfield Primary feeds Debenham High School, but some pupils opt to attend Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, both High Schools have exceptional reputations. There are six primary schools in the pyramid that feeds Debenham High School.
