Welcome to Burton End Primary Academy
We are proud of the facilities we provide for the children of our local community. The Academy grounds are extensive and include two separate playgrounds, a large sports field, a trim trail, a wild-life pond, a large climbing frame, a variety of seating areas as well as fruit trees and a nature area. The building itself consists of 14 large classrooms and a nursery, a class-size computer suite, two spacious halls, various small group teaching spaces and a well-stocked library. Our academy is spacious and flexible enabling us to hold a variety of events such as concerts, art exhibitions, sports events and parent meetings. We are continually striving to improve the learning environment for our children and our focus in the current academic year is to further develop our outside learning areas so that all year groups can benefit from extending their knowledge and experience of the wonders of nature and outdoor physical activity.

School Newsletter January 2017
Happy New Year to those of you who I have not managed to catch up with in the last week. The children have made a great start back, refreshed from their Christmas holidays. I hope that they have been talking enthusiastically about their new learning – they are certainly working hard when I carry out my regular climate walks.
By the end of this week you should receive the termly newsletter from your child’s class teacher which will outline the topic for this term and any special events that are due to happen. For example, I have just encountered 4F being drilled as Roman soldiers in the hall by Captain Fielden Maximus –clearly year 4 are studying the Romans this term!
School Newsletter 7th December
Once again we are drawing near to the end of a
busy and exciting term. Children who joined us in
Nursery and Reception now seem like ‘old hands’ –
they are following school routines and are learning
in leaps and bounds! Pupils across the school are
busy preparing their art work for our end of term
Art Exhibition and as I walk around the school it is
lovely to see children so engaged in their learning.

School Newsletter 21st October
As we approach the end of the half-term I thought it would be good to reflect on all the fantastic learning that has gone on so far this year. As I show visitors around the school or carry out my regular ‘learning walks’ I am always impressed by the eagerness of our children to answer questions and talk about their learning.
Children in Reception have settled really well and are now fully part of the school. It is a delight to see them eating their lunch in the hall and then going out to play with their friends at lunchtime. I have enjoyed playing Ring a Roses with some of them over the last few weeks.
Children in year 6 are working extremely hard – this week they are working on analysing the language in the poem ‘The Highwayman’. Some of the year 6 children have been excellent play leaders for the Reception children – even designing certificates for the younger ones. Thanks must go to them for giving up their own lunchtime play to help younger pupils.
