Burbage Primary School

About Us

At Burbage, we pride ourselves on offering a friendly, caring and happy school environment where children learn with enjoyment and flourish as individuals. We provide Excalibur’s exciting enquiry-based curriculum which is adapted to suit the children’s interests and firmly believe that children should enjoy school but also feel challenged to strive for success.

Global Citizenship is our Excalibur curriculum’s third driver. It is embedded within our teaching. We believe children should be active Local, National and International citizens who recognize and value difference and diversity. The curriculum gives children the opportunity to find out about the way the world works environmentally, politically, economically, socially and technologically.

We are a ‘Growing School’, not only in terms of numbers, but also through the way we use the outdoor environment for learning. We are developing our ‘kitchen garden’ where children grow vegetables for eating and have four chickens which we hatched from eggs last year. The children love their work in this aspect of learning!

The school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in October 2018

‘Burbage chose to join Excalibur Academies Trust because we wanted to be part of a local trust where the
‘all-through’ journey of learning for
each individual child is at the core
of all we do.’
