Welcome to Burford Primary School. If you would like any more information about the school, or to arrange for a visit, please contact the school office.
Welcome to Burford Primary School’s website. I have had the pleasure of leading the school since January 2021. As a small school, I have the opportunity to get to know each child individually and I love seeing children develop and grow during their time at our primary school. I am fully involved in school life and can often be found teaching a lesson, leading a club or working with a group of children. I am passionate about delivering a broad and balanced curriculum which puts positive learning behaviours at the heart of what we teach.
It is a very exciting time for our school, as we opened a 5th class this academic year. As such, we are currently reviewing our curriculum, ensuring that our children are supported in the best possible way in mixed age classes. Some subjects are taught in classes, and some classes are taught in year groups. More information can be found on the curriculum pages of our website, which is continually being updated.
We have nursery provision at our school, so we are able to welcome some children the term after their 3rd birthday. These children work alongside those who join us for their Reception year, giving us greater flexibility to support our youngest children.
Our school is part of the Oxford Diocesan Schools’ Trust (ODST), who support us in fulfilling their aim of achieving excellence in education.
The school’s values of ‘Respect, Aspire, Achieve’ underpin everything that we do, from ensuring we have inclusive classrooms promoting achievement for all right through to the way we make strategic plans. We have a committed team of staff and governors who will always make time to listen to the thoughts of our children, families and the wider community.
We provide wrap-around care via a Breakfast and After School Club, run by our own staff, which is very popular with our families and offers a wide range of activities for our children.
You will find information about our classes, curriculum alongside statutory information on our website, but to get a really good understanding of what we have to offer, please get in touch as I would love to meet you and give you a tour of the school.
Please note, paper copies of the documents on this website can be made available from the school office.
