Burnside Academy


It is with great pride that I welcome you to our thriving academy.  Burnside Academy is a small school and that allows our teachers to get to know each child so well.  This means we can adapt our teaching skilfully to meet the needs of each pupil - and that is what makes our school so special!


Our aim is that when every child leaves us at the end of Year 6, they will be confident, responsible members of society with all the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life.  We achieve this by showing our children how to develop the highest possible aspirations for themselves.  We structure our curriculum to be highly ambitious, but also accessible and inclusive, especially for disadvantaged pupils and those with SEND.  At Burnside Academy, we have a strong culture of keeping children safe and putting them at the heart of the school community.  The personal development and welfare of all children are of paramount importance, both in school and out of it. 


Our dedicated and skilled staff are committed to creating a secure, friendly, happy atmosphere where children can thrive.  They work tirelessly to ensure the safety and good care of all pupils, whilst supporting children to grow in confidence and academic progress.  The strong relationships in school and high levels of trust between adults and children ensure our standards of behaviour are something to be truly proud of.  We work closely with our families, guaranteeing school is supported by parents and parents are supported by the school, to enable children to thrive and become the best version of themselves. 


Our website is designed to give you an insight into our school’s culture and ethos, but this is just a start. We love to share our wonderful learning environment with others and would be happy to organise a visit for you. Please get in touch with the school office to arrange one.
