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.

Re-opening for Y6

Hi everyone,

I received confirmation from the trust executive board earlier today that we are now able to extend our offer and re-open, initially for our Year 6 pupils.  That will happen from Monday 8th June. 


Mrs Flowers will be in contact with the 16 Year 6 parents who have confirmed they would like their child to return to school. Mrs Flowers will talk you through start/ and finish times, as well as other practical arrangements. 


If you are a parent of a child in Year 6 who originally said no to returning to school then you can change your mind. However, you do need to contact the school office by Wednesday of each week to do that to allow us enough time to plan for the following week.  


Mrs Flowers will also be in contact with the parents of those children currently attending school to confirm arrangements for next week. 


Our plan is to establish how well re-opening for our Year 6 pupils goes and use this as a guide for planning to extend re-opening to F1, F2 and Year 1 pupils. I will be in contact with further details about this soon.


Mr Farrington
