Welcome to Duxford (C of E) Community Primary school website. Our school is situated to the south of the university city of Cambridge in a small village next to the famous Duxford Imperial War Museum and Airfield. Our school serves Duxford, including Heathfield, and the villages of Hinxton and Ickleton.

We are a voluntary controlled Church of England school, belonging to the Ely Diocese and have close links to our local church as well as being part of the local and wider community. We have a wonderful PTA, a breakfast and after school club (DX) and a playgroup on site.

The school is set in spacious grounds, enabling the children to have excellent play spaces, sporting opportunities, access to our own wildlife area and an outstanding garden area which is a valued curriculum space.

We expect our children to leave us as confident, creative and independent thinkers who have been given as many learning opportunities as possible for their intellectual, spiritual, physical and social growth.

We are proud to share further information with you in this website about our fantastic school.

School has settled well in to our new normal. Our Reception children have made a wonderful start to their school journey and love their mobile classroom – or as one child referred to it - the learning caravan.  The transition in to school took a bit longer this year as we hadn’t been able to do all of our normal getting to know you sessions but children are now in full time.  They joined Year 6 last week for their first Buddy Time session.  These are normally very lively with Year 6 playing or reading with their buddies.  This year it was a socially distanced affair in the KS2 playground.  Nevertheless, it was lovely to see the children introducing themselves and interacting with each other. I’m sure our teachers will come up with some imaginative ways for these sessions to carry on whilst still adhering to the guidelines.

Throughout the rest of the school we are trying to maintain as normal a school day as we can. Year 6 were able to take part in their Bikeability again this year – you may have seen them around the village- outdoor PE lessons with Cambridge United coaches still take place, intervention group work still happens and virtual assemblies zoom into classrooms everyday, and as always we celebrate the children’s achievements, whatever they may be, with electronic Special Cards.
