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 16th September
Thank you so much to all of you who came to the parent meetings this week in order to get an overview of the year for your child. If you were unable to attend we have spare hand-outs available at the office or you can download a copy from the school website.
I would just like to mention the fact that Mrs Wells our Caretaker retired at the end of August and I am sure you would like to join me in thanking her for her dedicated service over the years. We gave her a statue for her garden to remember us by at the end of the Summer Term. Our new Caretaker is Mr Newman who you may have seen unlocking the gates each morning and we would like to welcome him to the Burton End Team.
September School Newsletter
It was lovely to see many of you this morning with your children all relaxed, rested and excited about a new term at school.
Teachers were back in school last Thursday undertaking training activities and preparing their classrooms ready for the return of your children. They are all raring to embark on exciting topics and lessons leading up to our Art Exhibition at the end of term on the 8th December.
The school building has undergone the final round of window replacement this summer so all classrooms now are well insulated and better ventilated. We were all pleased to say goodbye to the old metal windows.
Full Day Nursery and Lunch Services
Our Burton End Nursery is changing. We will now be offering a full day nursery with lunch. Please speak to a member of staff about our new nursery services.
Year 2 Share afternoon
For our topic this term, Jetting Off, each Year 2 class has been learning about different countries. 2C has been learning about Australia and 2G Mexico. We invited our families in to take part in art activities and to sample some of our baking.
In 2C we created Aboriginal dot paintings and our families helped to bake batches of Aztec cookies. We shared our learning including knowing Christmas is in the middle of the summer in Australia.
KS2 Sports Day Postponed
The KS2 sports day has been postponing until the afternoon of Monday 27th June, weather permitting.. Please arrive in time for a 1pm start. The event will conclude at 3pm. We will keep you upto date if there are any changes to these details.
Thank you for your continuing support.
Burton End Sports Week 2016
We will be having our school sports days during the week of 20th to 24th June 2016. More details can be seen on our newsletter or the school events diary.
We hope that as many parents, carers and relatives will be able to come and support the children on the appropriate days. Please feel free to bring deck chairs or stools to sit on. Let’s hope for good weather. If we do have to postpone any event due to inclement weather we will inform parents by Parentmail and put the information on the school website.
