Dear Parents and Carers,
I was delighted to take up Headship at Burnhope school in September 2014. On first visiting the school I was impressed by the warm and caring atmosphere and we have continued to build upon this. In the years since then I have thoroughly enjoyed working with a wonderful staff and governors, delightful children and supportive parents to move the school forward, raise standards and keep us at the heart of the village. We continue to strive for excellence and are constantly looking for ways to improve the school.
We currently have 96 children on roll including children who attend Nursery sessions, making us a much smaller than average primary school. This means that all staff know the children well and are able to meet their individual needs. At Burnhope Primary School we aim to help all children meet their full potential in all aspects of their development. We want children to be happy at school and enjoy their time with us.
Successful education relies on an effective partnership between home and school. We very much value parental support and have an open-door policy. Parents are welcome to come into school at any time to discuss their child’s progress and any worries or concerns. We hold regular open-mornings and afternoons to celebrate the children’s work and offer termly appointments so that you can look at your child’s work, talk to the teachers and find out more about the life of the school.
We aim not only for academic success but also to build a tradition of respect, good manners, pride in work and sense of responsibility amongst our children. Your children will have the widest possible curriculum in a positive climate that enables everyone to succeed. We hope they will have lots and lots of fun along their educational journey with us and that Burnhope Primary School will be as special to them as they are to us.
