Headteacher’s Welcome Message

Welcome to Burford Primary School, an academy with the Oxford Diocesan Schools’ Trust (ODST). Our membership began in October 2015 and we are excited by the support and challenge this multi-academy trust partnership offers to our school, both now and in the future, with its commitment to excellence in education.

Our friendly school, with a ‘family’ atmosphere, provides a rich and challenging education for pupils aged 3-11 years and is situated at the heart of Burford, serving the local communities of Burford, Fulbrook, Taynton, Asthall, Widford, Westwell, Bradwell Grove, Shilton and Signet.

The pupils at Burford Primary enjoy coming to school because ‘ learning is fun’ (Ofsted 2012); they are taught within a safe and stimulating environment and the school promotes an equality of opportunity, so that all can achieve to their full potential. The success of every pupil matters with staff and governors committed to working in partnership with our parents and the wider community.

Outdoor learning, through Forest School, is experienced by all our pupils and is extremely popular. In addition, a variety of enrichment activities are on offer to enhance the provision further, including Cookery, Dance, Latin, Music, Science and Sport.

We provide wrap-around care via a Breakfast and After School Club, run by our own staff, which is very popular with working parents and offers a wide range of activities for our pupils.

If you are a prospective parent, you are most welcome to arrange for a tour of the school, when I would be delighted to meet you and your child.

Thank you for taking the time to visit us on-line and for your interest in our school; I hope you will enjoy browsing our website and find out more about the classes, sporting activities, music, school trips and other events.

Mrs Jenny Dyer
