Bedfield Primary School
Bedfield Primary School is a small rural village school situated close to the market town of Framlingham and Debenham village. They have 38 children on roll in September 2012. 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.
The school prides itselve in being small and special! Indeed, they recently achieved an ‘outstanding’ assessment by Ofsted. There is a friendly family ethos and the school is supported by a very vibrant set of parents and the local community. The school is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School and is part of the Diocese of St. Edmundsbury. Pupils visit the local church, St. Nicholas, for Harvest Festivals and Christmas services. Occasionally they visit the Church as part of curriculum activities.
In 2014 the school will have been serving the community for 150 years. It first opened its doors to "The children of the poor" on the 3rd of May 1864 with the Lord Bishop of Norwich doing the honours. Total cost for the school and teachers house build, £400. More details can be found on this event by viewing the "Ipswich journal extracts" found in the left hand column. There is also an article refering to a fund raising event for the school held in Framlingham in 1864.
