All about us
We are proud of our spacious site with its modern facilities, superb resources and happy, purposeful atmosphere. Outside, our large field enables children to take part in a wide range of sports and play with friends. Excellence in PE, sports, music and art are particular strengths of the school. Pupils enjoy gardening and growing our own produce in our 'Outdoor Classroom'.
For working parents, a breakfast club, after-school and holiday childcare service is operated by the school on-site.
Our Values-based philosophy underpins the way that we work, instilling our children with core values, including honesty, co-operation, tolerance, love, respect, determination and happiness. This combined with our wonderful facilities and safe, nurturing environment, enables our children to enjoy their learning, achieve excellent results and develop the confidence to succeed.
We welcome all children – no matter what their individual needs – and strive to include them with additional support in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for every child to make progress whatever their starting point or background.
Children feel proud to be part of Burnside. All children wear our school uniform, consisting of a white shirt, blouse or polo shirt; grey trousers, skirt or pinafore; red jumper, cardigan or sweatshirt with logo (available from school); red and white summer dress; plain black shoes.
