Our last Ofsted inspection was in March 2017. We were delighted when Ofsted inspectors commented that we remain a "Good" school.  As a school, we have worked so hard to maintain this, especially considering the current parameters.

Here is a flavour of just some of the positive comments from Michael Reeves, Her Majesty's Inspector:

  • Since the last inspection, the Headteacher has provided exceptional leadership, which has driven the development of the school and improved outcomes for pupils.
  • A vibrant learning environment has been created where displays of high quality work celebrate pupils' work across the curriculum. 
  • Burnside is ambitious to help all pupils to achieve the best outcomes.
  • Pupils' behaviour and attitude to learning are exemplary.
  • The Headteacher, staff and governors give the highest priority to keeping pupils safe.
