  • Transition

    Tue 18 Jun 2024 Deputy Head

    As we approach the end of the academic year, we are beginning preparations for the next step in our pupils’ educational journey. To ensure a smooth transition into the new school year, we have organised a special Transition Morning.

    Date: Tuesday, 25th June 2024 Time: Morning Session

    This is an excellent opportunity for your child to become acquainted with their new classroom and meet their teacher for the next academic year. We believe that by spending time in their new environment, the children will gain confidence and be well-prepared for the start in September.

    Our school prides itself on the consistency of our lesson structures and the effectiveness of our behaviour policies. These elements are crucial in providing a stable and familiar framework for our students, which greatly aids in their adaptation to new settings and expectations.

    During the Transition Morning, children will be registered with their current teacher before attending an assembly. Afterward, they will proceed to their new classrooms with their new teachers. The session will conclude with children returning to their current teacher after lunch.

    For our current Year 6 students, Mr Stokes and Mrs Shepherdson will conduct the morning activities.

    We encourage you to discuss this upcoming change with your child to further ease the transition.

    Burnside Triumphs in Cramlington and Seaton Valley Year 5 and 6 Girl Championship


    The Burnside Primary School girls’ football team showcased their exceptional talent and determination in the Cramlington and Seaton Valley Year 5 and 6 Girl Championship held today. From the very beginning, they played like true champions, leaving no doubt that they were the team to watch.


    After intense matches against rival schools, Burnside emerged triumphant, securing victory and bringing home the coveted championship trophy. Their skill, teamwork, and unwavering spirit were evident throughout the tournament.


    The proud Burnside team returned to their school, where they took a celebratory lap of honor on the school field. Holding their hard-earned trophy high, they received applause from their fellow students, teachers, and staff. The entire school community shared in their joy and celebrated their remarkable achievement.


    Congratulations to the Burnside girls for their outstanding performance! We look forward to more victories and inspiring moments from our talented students.

  • Burnside School’s Commitment to Safeguarding Children.

    Tue 14 May 2024 Headteacher

    I am writing to reaffirm Burnside School’s Commitment to Safeguarding Children. The safety and well-being of our students are paramount, and we wish to keep you informed about the proactive measures we implement to ensure their protection.


    The Role of Adults in School

    Our dedicated staff undergo comprehensive training to attentively listen to the children and promptly relay any concerns to our designated safeguarding leads, Mrs. Williams or myself. Rest assured, we address every concern with the utmost seriousness and, when necessary, collaborate with parents and/or external agencies to ensure the safety of our students.


    Risks Online and in the Home

    In today’s digital age, it is crucial to educate our children about the potential risks they face both online and in their daily lives. Our RSHE and computing curriculums are designed to empower students with knowledge about these risks. Additionally, we utilise our assemblies to discuss acceptable and unacceptable behaviours, fostering a culture of respect and safety inline with our school motto, Be Safe, Be Smart, Be Kind.


    Encouraging Open Communication

    We believe in the importance of open communication. Our students are encouraged to voice any worries they may have with our school staff, whether in person or through our worry box system. This approach ensures that no concern goes unheard and that our students feel supported at all times.


    Risks in the Community

    The safety of our children extends beyond the school premises. We actively monitor and assess ‘school safe’ alerts from local schools. Should a risk be confirmed by the police, we adhere to our internal procedures and promptly.


    Our regular drills for ‘invacuation’ and evacuation are meticulously conducted to ensure that our children are well-prepared to respond in the event of an emergency.


    We thank you for your continued trust in Burnside School. Together, we create a secure environment where our children can thrive.
