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.
We are really pleased to be able to welcome everyone back! School is even more different now than we could ever have imagined!
After the fire on 31st July, the Local Authority leapt into action to demolish the damaged buildings and erect mobile classrooms for Year 1, Year 2, Reception, Pre-school and DX. We are currently waiting for new furniture and the installation of the whiteboards – hence the slight delay to our youngest children returning to school.
Although we are all saddened by our loss, we are now very excited about what the future holds for our school and we are hopeful that, with everyone working together, the planning for a replacement building won’t be too far away. Most importantly everyone is well and everyone is safe. We cannot wait to start this new year together attentive, imaginative and motivated ready to learn once more in our spiritual Duxford School community- where we belong.
We have worked very closely with the local authority health and safety advisor and are confident that measures regarding the safety of the site and COVID 19 have being met. We will, as we have done throughout the pandemic, be guided by government guidelines and make changes accordingly.
It has been wonderful to hear the happy chatter of children back in their classrooms after such a prolonged period of being away from school. This term will have many challenges but, with the hard work of our dedicated staff team and the amazing support from our families and from the wider community, we will continue to provide a safe and stimulating environment for our children.
