Welcome To Burwell Village College Primary School
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.
This website introduces you to our school. I hope that you find it informative and helpful. If you require further details or wish to share any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
Snow Closures 2018
Closing a school due to the snow is always a delicately balanced decision as we can’t please everybody all of the time. We have to balance the safety of staff driving to school with the needs of parents to get to work and the desire of the children to have a day off and play in the snow. As a school we will always endeavour to remain open as long as there are enough teaching staff and it is safe for the school to open.
A decision to close is made by 7.30 a.m. so please remember to listen to Radio Cambridgeshire or Heart FM. After this time we also send a message via email, post on our school website, and the Local Authority website. The major radio update is at 8.00 a.m.
Please always assume the school is open until you hear differently.
