Working now for a better future

The ‘Bury Schools Partnership Offer’ unlocks tremendous opportunities for parents, teachers and of course, most importantly, for the young people of St Edmundsbury.

That’s why we are making professional development, planning and logistics such a high priority. We hope you will join us in looking forward to a very exciting future.

Planning for an exciting new future

Like us, you will no doubt want to know that the absolute focus is on the children. We are immersed in an ongoing, strategic programme of development for our teachers and support staff.

Discussions with parents and students are also crucial – in fact, this transition phase has intensified our parental engagement and student voice and given us more insight than ever before.
