Berryfields church of England Primary School opened as part of the Aylesbury Vale Academy in September 2013 and we now have children in all year groups from Nursery to Year 6 for the first time.

A commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children is essential and we expect all our staff to share our desire to serve the people of Berryfields and to help build a community that enables our children and their families to be the very best they can.
