Our school motto ‘where every 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, their families and our staff 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 staff are happy and successful. We are focused on providing a safe, respectful and happy learning environment, which is purposeful and stimulating, including our Forest School and 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 and our community.
High standards of behaviour and discipline are expected at all times, 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.

Our School Aims
At Burton upon Stather Primary School, we aim to provide the highest standard of teaching and learning, pastoral care and broad cross-curricular and extra–curricular experience, in a secure, caring, stimulating and happy environment, where each pupil’s educational, social, moral and cultural needs are met to enable them to gain a sense of independence and begin to develop in confidence and self-esteem into their best selves.
We expect all children at this school to be able to enter all walks of life, confident in the knowledge that they have received a sound, yet broad, creative and balanced foundation to their learning.
The school curriculum ensures coverage of the new National Curriculum and Religious Education, delivered through a wide range of carefully planned activities and experiences, which are personal to our community. We believe that all children are special individuals with special needs and talents.
As a school we believe that the most valuable education is one that is broad and balanced, enabling children to enjoy their childhood whilst benefiting from a wonderful range of opportunities both in and out of the classroom.
With these elements in place, our school aims to produce young people, at eleven, who are confident, who are achieving well in and out of the classroom and who are appreciative of the needs of others around them.
Such young people will be well prepared for the senior phase of their education and for life beyond.
