At Burwell Village College Primary School we strive to achieve a balance between high academic standards and the all round development of the children in our care. To this end, we provide a broad and balanced education, carefully tailored to deliver the requirements of the National Curriculum, whilst meeting the needs of all of our pupils. In addition, we offer a growing number of opportunities for children to develop individual talents outside the classroom.
We take great care to provide a secure and stimulating environment within which children can develop towards the full extent of their ability. We believe in a purposeful and disciplined approach to learning, where children show respect for their school and all within its community. Through appropriate and focused lively teaching, we aim to build on the good work that is accomplished at home and prior to starting school.
You and your child will have high expectations of their schooling. I can assure you that all staff at Burwell Village College Primary will do their utmost to make your child happy and successful. A firm partnership between pupil, parent and school will do much to bring these aspirations to fruition.
I hope you will encourage your child to become fully involved in the life of our school. Such a commitment will help turn an exciting and rewarding schooling into a memorable one.
In January 2009 Ofsted inspected the school and commented, “This is a good school where pupils achieve well. It has progressed well since its last inspection and has a good capacity to continue to develop. The effective leadership and clear direction provided by the headteacher and the leadership team, supported well by the governors, are key factors in driving this progress. While pupils achieve well academically, they also develop outstanding personal and social skills because of the excellent support and guidance in place. As a result, the school has an exceptionally high level of parental support and confidence. As one commented, 'Burwell Village College is a happy, safe place for my son to learn. He is treated as an individual and nurtured to a high standard'."
