Parents/Carers as Partners

As a School we aim to form strong partnerships with parents and carers in support of their children's learning.  There is a wealth of information on this website which can help parents to become more involved in their children's learning and share in their success. 

Watch out for the continuous development of this page which will shortly give easy access to information and suggest ways in which you can use the content to support your children.

If there are ways in which you think we can improve this support, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or the headteacher who will be pleased to discuss your suggestions.



The School’s prospectus provides lots of detail about the School that will help parents/carers to find out the information they need when choosing a school for their children.


If you want to know more about the wide range of policies effective in the School you will find a complete list for reference along with policies for each area of the curriculum by following the link below.

Practical Support

Cornerstones Curriculum

The new Cornerstones Curriculum provides pupils with a varied, creative way to learn the elements of the National Curriculum and, within each term summary, there are activities for families and children to take part in at home.  This is a great way for children and their families to have fun together whilst supporting their learning. Follow the link for more information.


Records of our exciting events are available on the website and on Facebook. Our weekly Burton Bulletin also showcases what the classes are getting up to and provides useful information and dates for upcoming events. 

Celebration Worship

There are regular Celebration Worships held on Wednesday afternoons when children celebrate the work they have been doing in front of an audience of their families.  Information and photos are available so that you can discuss them with your children.
