Our Burford Primary School motto is: 'ATTEND, ASPIRE, ACHIEVE.'
Our children ATTEND school every day because they look forward to learning!
We have worked hard to develop a curriculum throughout school which is fun, inspiring, hard work and helps us to ACHIEVE high standards so that we can be ASPIRATIONAL about our futures.
Our curriculum is organised around six topics (one per half term) which are relevant to us. A fantastic class book is at the heart of each of these topics, and children receive a 'book present' each year to fill up their bookshelves. At the end of each year, Burford children will have a minimum of 6 quality texts on their shelves at home that they're excited about!
All of our subjects are taught through this topic theme so that our learning has a relevant context. Each topic is launched with an exciting trip or creative opportunity and, where possible, we invite members of the community to help us to celebrate our hard work at the end of our learning journeys!
Parents are invited to attend a Curriculum Open Evening at the start of each year to find out more about the upcoming topics, trips, class books and more! We want parents to be as enthusiastic about our curriculum as we are, and to help at home too!
We adapt an established scheme called 'Abacus' to meet the needs of all of our children.
