Burford is now closed for everyone other than vulnerable children and the children of key workers. If you would like to see what we've been up to, check out our 'Videos' page (Under the 'Children' link on the homepage)! For those children now at home, our teachers are updating Class Dojo with home-learning ideas. Please keep checking and commenting! We hope you are keeping happy, healthy and safe! We are reminding Team Burford to, above all else, BE KIND!

Welcome to Burford Primary and Nursery School

Whilst school is closed, school is using Class Dojo so teachers can make daily contact with their classes, set work and post regular updates. Please contact school if you experience problems with Dojo. If you have social care concerns, ring 0115 8761000 or 999 if an emergency.

How do I find out what my child's class is doing?

At Burford, we encourage everyone at home to sign up to Class Dojo!



We use this for the following things:


  • Class teachers send out useful private messages (e.g. things to remember or key dates!)
  • Class teachers send messages home about great work
  • Mr Farrington likes to award a Headteacher's Award for outstanding work, and to celebrate this with people at home
  • Teachers - and sometimes children - update their 'Class Story' with photos and diary entries about what we've been up to in class
  • SLT use 'School Page' to tell you about upcoming whole school events (e.g. sports day!)


Please chat to your child's class teacher about how you can sign up to Class Dojo for use on your phone, tablet or desktop.  computer.
