Boxford Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School is situated in the village of Boxford and is built on an attractive site next to the village church. It is a local authority co-educational day school with a part time nursery catering for children aged from four to nine. The school catchment area consists of the villages of Assington, Boxford, Edwardstone, Groton, Newton Green and White Street Green. Increasingly children are coming from outside this area as parents exercise their right to choose their child’s school.

The school grounds contain a hard play area and a field with facilities for many sports and games. Also contained in the grounds is an environmental area where the children can develop an understanding and an appreciation of the natural world around them. The school is housed in an attractive building which has been modernised throughout. There is a spacious well equipped hall which also serves as the dining area. The school has a nursery unit and six classrooms which share three practical activity areas. There is a central library with a wide selection of both fiction and non-fiction books. Each teaching area is well resourced with quality resources for all areas of the curriculum including a number of up-to-date multimedia computers.

There are six main teaching groups with the children being grouped largely according to age in classes of mixed ability.

Children start part time in the nursery two terms before they begin full time education. Compulsory full time education starts for children at the beginning of the term in which they are five.

During the Summer Term of 1998 the school was fully inspected by a team of inspectors from the Office for Standards in Education (OFSTED) and quotes from the report are written in italics throughout this prospectus. A copy of the summary can be obtained free of charge from the school office. The full report can be purchased at a cost of £5.00 (to cover production costs) or viewed via the Dfee website on the Internet.

In the year 2000 the school applied for and successfully gained a Government Charter Mark which was ‘awarded for excellence’. This award, rare in the education sector, recognises high standards of public service and the contribution the school plays to its customers (children and parents), the local community and the wider community through support for charitable bodies such as the Hadleigh Riding for the Disabled.


Our uniform is optional, although we do encourage all children to wear it, and most do because it is practical and comfortable. In the winter boys wear grey or black trousers, with a white or pale blue polo shirt and the school sweatshirt. Girls wear either blue, black or grey skirts or trousers, a white polo shirt and the school sweatshirt. In the summer boys can wear shorts, and girls a blue and white dress if they wish.

School sweatshirts and polo shirts are sold at cost price

These children are modelling the winter uniform.


There are lots of clubs that children at school can join. Most of these take place during the school lunch hour, but a few take place after school due to the facilities that they require. Please click on a link below to read more about each club (as written by the children).
