Welcome to Burton-on-the-Wolds Primary School
Inspire Nurture Flourish
I am delighted to welcome you to Burton-on-the-Wolds Primary School. As you browse our website, I hope that you will gain a good insight into the life of our school and those who teach, work and learn here.
At Burton we welcome children, their parents and carers into a friendly, nurturing, hardworking and exciting environment, where respect for others and positive attitudes towards work and behaviour are firmly embedded. Relationships throughout the school are fundamental to a positive ethos. We have a very skilled and supportive Governing Body, who work in close partnership with the school community to ensure that there is mutual respect and trust, as well as challenge, ambition and drive.
We are very proud of our strong partnership with the local community; village groups, Burton Pre-School, local primary schools, feeder secondary schools and the parish church at Prestwold. Together we ensure that the school is at the centre of the community and the children grow to understand the importance of belonging and develop a strong community spirit.
We offer a relevant and exciting, broad and balanced curriculum, where children are encouraged to be independent, deep thinkers and make informed choices about their learning. We ensure a wide range of experiences, especially through educational visits, music, sport and the performing arts. We consider skills of communication, maths and English to be the foundation of our learning and we are extremely proud of our high standards and achievements, as highlighted in our most recent OfSTED inspection – 2018, when we were awarded "Outstanding" in all areas.
We encourage all parents and carers to come in at every opportunity, whether it is to talk to teachers about their child’s progress, see their child achieve and perform, to be part of social events or to discuss openly and honestly any concerns or difficulties their child may have during this first stage of their educational journey. We listen to the views of our pupils and parents and use them to shape the strategic direction of the school.
Come and see our school in action and feel the positive atmosphere for yourself! Contact the school today to arrange a time to meet me and have a tour of the school.
With very best wishes,
Claire Wilson (Headteacher)
