Headteacher’s Welcome Message

Welcome to Burford Primary School and thank you 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.

Our friendly school, with a ‘family’ atmosphere, is situated in the heart of Burford, on the edge of the Cotswolds and serves the communities of Burford, Fulbrook, Taynton, Asthall, Widford, Westwell, Bradwell Grove, Shilton and Signet. There are currently 115 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 through a Breakfast and After School Club, run by our own staff, which is very popular with 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.
