On behalf of all the staff I would like to welcome you to Burlington Junior School.
As a Junior school, we believe that young children learn best when they are stimulated by an exciting and challenging curriculum which motivates them to learn. We actively encourage children to be inquisitive about the world around them and we celebrate every child’s success. Our aim is to create a lifelong love of learning in every child.
At Burlington Junior School we ensure our whole school curriculum is rich and rigorous, and designed with our community and pupils in mind. We have a diverse community with over 60% pupils who have English as an additional language. Developing their (and all our children’s) cultural capital is key if they are to be well prepared for secondary school and beyond.
As a school, we greatly value the views of the school community and throughout the year provide opportunities for both children and parents to contribute their ideas. A Parent Forum is now firmly established and I encourage you to become involved as much as you can. This may be through attending Parent Forum meetings, actively supporting the PTA, becoming the class representative or even considering joining the Burlington School Governors.
Burlington Junior School provides a happy, welcoming and caring environment for children and their family throughout the years they are with us. I look forward to meeting you, especially on our welcome mornings which take place regularly.
I am often available in the playground at the beginning or end of the day. Please do come and say hello. For a more formal meeting I am always happy to meet parents should they wish to discuss any issues regarding their child’s education. Please make an appointment through the school office if you wish to speak with me.
Once again, welcome to you and your family. We are delighted you have chosen Burlington Junior School and look forward to a long and happy relationship together.
Mrs Pip Utting
