Burton Road Primary School is a mixed Junior and Infant School with an attached Nursery Unit.
The school is committed to keeping all class sizes below 30, as part of the personalising learning agenda, and in order to give very child the best possible chance to fulfill their potential.
At Burton Road Primary School we have worked hard to create a positive atmosphere where children can feel welcome and secure.
We set high standards for academic achievements and for socially acceptable behaviour. We encourage the children’s interests through a wide range of extra curricular activities, educational visits and the involvement of writers, storytellers, artists, sculptors, theatre groups and performers within school. We are seeking to develop a dynamic curriculum where children feel inspired to learn…
All children at this school have potential and should aim to… ‘Follow The Road To Success!”
