Welcome to Burton End Primary Academy
We are very proud of the improvements we have made as a school since becoming an academy in November 2014. We have recently embarked on the next stage of our journey as an academy by becoming part of the Samuel Ward Academy Trust and are now working closely with other academies within the trust. Our aim is to provide children with a curriculum that enthuses them and provides them with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in today’s society.
I am delighted that the PROUD principles of being professional, resilient, optimistic, understanding and driven that Burton End pupils and staff work to exhibit, link so well with the Samuel Ward Academy Trust core values of responsibility, resilience, courage, wisdom, respect, justice, compassion, hope and integrity.
The academy grounds are extensive and include two separate playgrounds, a large sports field, a wild-life pond, a large climbing frame, fruit trees and a woodland area. The building itself consists of 14 large spacious classrooms, two halls, a dedicated computing suite, various small group teaching spaces and a well- stocked library.
We warmly invite you to come and visit us here at Burton End to see our school and meet our delightful children.

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!
