Our Mission Statement

Our philosophy of ‘Striving for the future’ is at the heart of everything we do. Providing opportunities and encouraging children to develop their skills, knowledge and a drive to succeed is central in helping them to become well-rounded and successful individuals, now and in adult life.  

Our Vision Statement

At Burscough Village Primary School, we provide a close-knit school community where pupils are supported to become truly independent learners. Pupils are encouraged to voice their opinions effectively, develop good mental health and are nurtured in order to become kind and understanding individuals, who value and respect uniqueness. Our fun, stimulating and challenging, high-quality learning environment provides the perfect setting for children to foster their talents and interests and develop a positive growth mindset. Together with this, our ambitious curriculum enables each member of the school community to fulfil their personal aspirations and to achieve their very best. 

Our Values Statement

In support of our school mission and vision, we have created six key values that underpin the learning and experiences we provide for our school community.   


We want our children to achieve the best they possibly can. We have high standards and aim to instill a positive ‘can do’ attitude in all pupils to allow them to thrive. Our 2022 Year 6 SATS results demonstrate excellence, and we are one of the Top 200 schools in England for our Multiplication Test results 2022.   

Pupil Voice

We listen to our pupils. They love real life experiences, trips and welcoming visitors to learn first-hand. The children voice their opinions, and we tailor the learning, events and school environment to their interests and aspirations.  


Our school is in the heart of the community. We gain resources and provide experiences for the children from the local community. We teach the pupils about who lives in their diverse community, so they learn to respect everyone. People may be unique in many ways, including race or ethnicity, age, disabilities, language, culture, appearance, or religion.  


Our children are truly nurtured in every aspect of school life. The staff know the children individually, as humans as well as academically, and are therefore able to meet the needs of each child. The children learn about how to look after themselves, lead healthy lifestyles and care for people around them. Visitors who come to our school always say, ‘It has a lovely feel and energy.’   

Growth Mindset

We encourage children, staff and parents to have a growth mind-set and this continued learning creates a rich exciting atmosphere for everyone. If faced with a challenge, the children say, “I can’t do it, yet!’  


The children adore exploring the outdoors at every opportunity. We have amazing school grounds, and we use this space to enhance learning whenever possible. The school community is passionate about the environment we live in, and we teach the children to care about the environment and look after our planet. We are committed to 'Let's go zero, 2030', a project for schools to become carbon neutral by 2030.
