Welcome to Crawford's Church of England Primary School.
At Crawford’s Primary School, our mission is to create a learning ecosystem where everyone feels valued, inspired and able to achieve. This mission is epitomised by our motto: 'Following Jesus, together we care, inspire and achieve.'
Within the Christian ethos of the school, children are encouraged to be kind and courteous, to respect each other, to share, to develop responsibilities and to care for each other as part of the school community.
Our Ethos is simple - we want our learning community; parents, children and teachers to develop a thirst and love for what they are doing and learning. Moreover, we believe in inspiring everyone to work towards the highest standards and with an ethic of excellence in order to provide children with world-class learning outcomes.
We welcome visits to the school - please see our contact us page for ways to get in touch

We are a small rural school situated in the beautiful village of Haughley. Our catchment area serves the parishes of Haughley and Wetherden. We are a Church of England Primary School which caters for children between 5 and 11 years of age.
Reverend William Crawford founded our school in 1866. It was established in the first instance as a Church of England foundation. It maintains good links with the Church through its Foundation Governors and the active support of the Vicar and Curate of Haughley and Wetherden.
The school's building is one of character that has been extended over the years. We have four classrooms, an activities area and a library area as well as a separate hall/dining room. Children use the playground at playtimes and lunchtimes and also make use of the village playing field when the weather is good.
