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, is situated in the heart of Burford, a beautiful town, at the edge of the Cotswolds; it serves the communities of Burford, Fulbrook, Taynton, Asthall, Widford, Westwell, Bradwell Grove, Shilton and Signet and currently there are 108 pupils on roll, aged between three and eleven, organised into four classes.
The children at Burford Primary enjoy coming to school because ‘learning is fun’ (Ofsted 2012). The curriculum is taught within a safe and stimulating environment and promotes an equality of opportunity, so that all our learners can achieve to their full potential. The success of every child matters and staff and governors work in partnership with our parents and the wider community.
Music, ICT and a range of sporting activities, taught by specialist teachers, further enhance the provision; outdoor learning is promoted across the school and a range of activity clubs are on offer.
We provide wrap-around care for the children 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.
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 children’s classes, sporting activities, music, school trips and other events.
Mrs Jenny Dyer
