Our school motto ‘where very child can shine’ reflects how we strive to be excellent in all that we do and how we expect the same of others. We live, love and learn at the centre of our community and empower our young people to be lifelong learners, responsible citizens and to be the very best version of themselves. Our pupils and their families, are the epitome of everything that is great about our school.
Team Burton is dedicated to your child’s education and ensuring all our pupils and our staff are happy and successful. We are focused on providing a safe, respectful and happy learning environment, which is purposeful and stimulating, including extra curricular activities.
Education at Burton upon Stather Primary School is a partnership between pupils, parents, staff, governors and our local community. We pride ourselves on a cohesive environment, whereby we are all seen as working together for the good of all our pupils.
High standards of behaviour and discipline are expected, so that everyone feels safe, valued and respected. In the classroom our dedicated teachers offer exciting learning opportunities that create a happy and harmonious place to learn.
If there is any information you need that cannot be found on our website then please do not hesitate to contact our school office or you're very welcome to come and have a look around- our children very much enjoy sharing their school and all our achievements. Our door is always open and we look forward to working with you.
