"The behaviour of pupils and school's work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding..."
Welcome to Burneston!
We strive to encourage children to be the best that they can be. Aspirations and aiming high are central to how we want our children to think. Children are nurtured to develop as respectful, independent, resilient, collaborative, curious motivated individuals, with a broad and balanced education which builds on children’s strengths. They develop strong roots, working with our team of staff in a caring environment which values learning in and outside the classrooms.
We are a happy and friendly school community, fostering an inclusive and caring environment in which to inspire and motivate our children. As a Church of England school, we welcome all children and families. The staff and governors are justly proud of our school and the support and guidance we are able to give pupils, preparing them for life beyond primary school and into their adult lives.
The school has great facilities, including landscaped outdoor play areas, a large nature area and pond, extensive grassed areas and playgrounds. A local provider offers before and after-school provision to support working parents.
We work hard to make our school a happy and stimulating environment for the children in our care, a place where they can learn, grow and develop. Our curriculum gives children access to broad and balanced experiences enriched by visits, visitors and involving parents. We always incorporate children’s interests when planning our schemes of work and closely assess progress in order to provide challenge and support.
We strive to build strong relationships with our parents and we value and encourage their involvement and support throughout the years of their child’s education with us. We have high expectations of what our children can do, and we work hard – and encourage parents to support us – in order that our children can make the best possible progress, regardless of their starting points.
Everyone is welcome at Burneston so do get in touch using the Contacts link for further information or to arrange a visit.
