At Burnside Primary School, we aim to create a challenging and coherent curriculum to ensure that our children enjoy, achieve and are equipped for the next stage of their learning journey. We aim to provide our pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives and to take responsibility for their own learning.

These are our main aims upon which we have based our curriculum:

  • To create a safe, happy and supportive environment;

  • To provide a coherent, challenging and engaging curriculum which develops a love of learning for pupils and staff;

  • To encourage pupils to take risks in their learning;

  • To develop in our children a sense of awe, curiosity and wonder for the world around them;

  • To shape well-rounded, determined young people who can face the challenges of the modern world with confidence.
