What the parents say...

My daughter joined the school in the Summer 2016 and has not looked back! She has come on so much in her basic reading, writing, and maths. She is on the dyslexia spectrum and the school have been extremely supportive and as such her educational experience has not been marred by her dyslexia. Additional activities such as Forest School, school productions and most recently an archaeological field trip to help on a live dig all enhance not just her education but her overall development. The school has also been incredibly supportive in a pastoral role to both myself and my daughter. A small but excellent caring school.

Our daughter was welcomed into Reception Class at West Burton School in 2014, she is currently KS1 and is excited to be moving into KS2 in September 2017. The quality of education and overall experience she receives is excellent. Children are encouraged to progress with certificates for Maths Missions, Pen License for Writing, and School Ambassadors are elected to uphold the RESPECT Code. The children have the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities such as Forest Schools, the local Tournament of Song, etc. to name but a few. Our daughter also takes part in the after school Sports Club where she really enjoys earning the medals! Parents are invited to join the children at a weekly Celebration Assembly where it is lovely to hear about what the children have been up to and to celebrate achievements such as House Points, Pupil of the Week and Head Teachers Award with all of the children. To sum up - small but perfectly formed

This is an excellent small village school, set in the middle of the village of West Burton. Children are provided with an excellent all-round education and with a Good Ofsted report our children are very happy here and excel in their learning. As a village school there is a great sense of community and teachers are able to adapt to the needs of the children.

This small school provides an excellent all-round education and is able to focus on the specific needs of each individual child. In addition to the quality of teaching, there is a superb ethos and every single child enjoys their school.

As the parent of one ex pupil, one current pupil and two future pupils, i can say that the quality of education received at West Burton is superb. The atmosphere is friendly, every child seems to love their time their and the attitude to learning is fantastic. The number of pupils may be fairly small, but the overall experience is outstanding.
