Welcome to Burtonwood Community Primary School
As the headteacher of Burtonwood Community Primary School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to those looking to discover more about our wonderful school and I thank you for taking the time to explore our website. Burtonwood has a strong sense of community built over many years, even generations of families, supporting and trusting our school to provide an excellent education for local children. With the support of Omega Multi Academy Trust, I am very excited to be sharing the next stage of this journey.
During the course of the last year, Burtonwood Community Primary School has been through a period of transition and change, however, the fundamental values of the school and the commitment of our talented staff to provide an excellent education to all our pupils continues unabated. The sustained achievements of our school have been recognised and celebrated during our recent OFSTED inspection where we received a positive report. The continuing success of our school is due to the hard work, determination and drive for excellence of our whole school community.
As we enter the next phase of our journey, developing the knowledge and skills that our children require, delivered through a balanced and comprehensive curriculum, remains a priority. During the course of this academic year, we are introducing the High Performance Learning programme which encourages our children to recognise their strengths and areas for development, while at the same time creating a culture of high performance for each of our pupils. To support this, our curriculum has been designed to meet the requirements for each subject and will allow our children to experience a wide range of learning, further details of which are contained within this website.
Alongside excellent teaching and learning, we will provide all children with a various extended opportunities, the intent of which is to allow them to develop their talents, gifts and interests. Whether through opportunities to perform, display artwork within an exhibition, represent the school as part of a sports team or overcome a design challenge within our STEM work, each child will have the opportunity to discover and explore their passions.
A key part of our school’s ongoing development has been to make significant investment in improving our outdoor areas. The Reception setting has received a significant overhaul creating a purposeful and engaging environment for our pupils to learn. Work to resurface the playground areas is ongoing and plans are being drawn up to re-instate the forest school areas. The purpose of this investment is to provide the children of Burtonwood with an inspiring environment that enhances learning across the curriculum. Furthermore, it will encourage our students to develop organisational and leadership skills as they will play a key role in delivering these opportunities, for example as lunchtime play leaders. All of these experiences will prepare them for life after Burtonwood.
By sustaining and developing positive relationships across our school community, we will continue to provide our children with an excellent education. We will take every opportunity to celebrate these moments with our parents through the use of social media and via Seesaw. We will continue to arrange events where parents will be welcomed into school in order to share the children’s learning.
All are welcome at Burtonwood CP and I look forward to meeting with you over the course of the next academic year. If you would like to take a tour of our wonderful school or if I can help with any other matter, then please do not hesitate in contacting me via the school office.
Mr Jason Heatley
