It is a real pleasure and absolute privilege as the Headteacher of Burnside Primary School to welcome you to our school website.

I am passionate that we create a truly outstanding school built on secure foundations of excellent teaching, a daring, memorable, creative curriculum and consistently high academic attainment and progress for all learners. We have high expectations of our children and set challenging targets for them. Every child is encouraged to reach their full potential and we recognise that every child is special and has their own contribution to make. We pride ourselves in making our children feel special and being able to nurture their talents in all areas of the curriculum.

We recognise that parents play a vital role in the education of their children and as such we welcome your support and co-operation in making your child’s time at Burnside Primary the very best it can be.

It is my vision that the children of Burnside leave us in Year 6 as happy, successful, articulate, aspirational and empathetic young people, eager for the next stage of learning in their lives and respectful towards the exciting differences of cultures in modern British society.

Together we will make Burnside Primary an exciting place for your child; a one where they will continue to learn, grow and flourish.
