Headteacher's Welcome

Sally Hewlett-TaylorAt Burhill, we are passionate about learning, and we believe everyone is a learner. Our job at Burhill is to make sure everyone can achieve and attain the best they can.  We value independent thinkers at Burhill, so we want children to develop a positive and independent attitude towards learning.  Every child is encouraged to develop as an individual in a strongly caring and supportive environment where they feel safe and secure.

The school provides a uniquely broad, balanced and creative curriculum so that children enjoy learning, are curious and motivated to learn.  We encourage children to find out more about the world they live in and to understand the contribution they can make.  Children have the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning and also for their own school environment.

We know that education works best when there is a strong partnership between home and school; we are proud that we work closely with parents and carers in the best interest of the child and value the contribution parents can make to the school.
