About Burraton Community Primary School

At Burraton, we aim to provide our children with a safe, secure environment in which they can take risks with their learning. Every day, they are supported in developing skills and attitudes which help them to develop in confidence and independence. When children leave us, we want them to have a love of learning which will stay with them throughout life.

Enjoyment, challenge and activity are at the heart of successful learning and we endeavour to achieve this through a broad and balanced curriculum which allows children to reach their potential.

We want our children to be the very best they can be!
