A welcome message from our Headteacher

Welcome to Brightwell-cum-Sotwell Primary School. We are a thriving, vibrant and friendly school situated in the heart of the village. The 100 children who come to Brightwell enjoy learning in a beautiful school surrounded by green spaces.

As a parent myself I know the importance of finding the best school for your child which offers exceptional learning and a close working partnership with families. I believe there is nothing better than a personal visit to see all this yourself.

We look forward to seeing you soon

"Pupils are overwhelmingly positive about how well they get along together.....Good teaching enables pupils of all abilities to achieve well....in reading, writing and mathematics....The broad range of subjects studied provides well for pupils' academic achievement while effectively promoting their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development."      (Ofsted 2013)
