Dear Parents and Carers,
I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to our wonderful school. It is an honour for me to lead Burscough Village Primary. We have high expectations and aspirations for all our children. Each child has their own special talents which we endeavour to nurture and develop in our school. Our philosophy ‘Striving for the Future’ is at the core of everything we do, providing the children with vital skills, knowledge, and experiences that they need to become well-rounded individuals now and in adult life. We encourage children, staff and parents to have a growth mind-set and this continued learning creates a rich exciting atmosphere and environment for everyone.
Burscough Village Primary School is set in the heart of Burscough community. We have strong links with the local people which gives a much-valued dimension to the school’s ethos. The local area provides pupils with real experiences and inspires the children to appreciate the place they live.
Our curriculum makes learning come alive through excellent teaching taught via interesting topics. Many trips enliven the subject matter and visitors give of their expertise to motivate pupils learning. Clubs and activities further enrich children’s lives beyond the school day. We have an amazing before and after school club for parents who need this provision. Our dedicated team of staff and governors work tirelessly to guide and nurture our school. In our last Ofsted Inspection, we were judged ‘Good in all Areas’.
The children adore exploring the outdoors at every opportunity. To foster this learning and encourage a love of the great outdoors we have a full-size football pitch, a pond, willow tunnels, a staging area, an outdoor classroom, climbing frames, a traverse wall, a treehouse, table tennis tables and a firepit. We encourage the children to look after the world they live in and help to recycle, reduce and reuse materials.
We have a nursery school set in our beautiful grounds for children from the age of two. The class is taught by a fully qualified teacher and experienced teaching assistants. We were pleased to be awarded ‘The Lancashire Step into Quality Award’, Nursery and Reception, for Early Years Excellence. Year 1 are current engaged in this project.
We have a proactive Friends and Family of BVPS who plan many fundraising events to provide many brilliant additional resources and opportunities for all our pupils. They also plan exciting evenings for parents and carers such as quiz nights and wine and cheese evenings. They are currently fundraising for our new media centre.
We hope you learn to love our school as much as we do. We feel sure that your child’s time with us will create many happy, treasured memories that will stay with him or her for the rest of their life.
