Burford is a happy, safe school where our passion for learning is lived through our Christian values.
At Burford we are:
Rooted in Love
Growing in Trust
Blossoming with Courage
Prepared to Flourish in God's World
Burford C.E. Primary School
The oak tree is the traditional symbol of Burford C of E Primary. From the real tree in the playground to the trees displayed on our logos it epitomises who we are. Our community tends to be a settled one. Generations have been sheltered under the boughs of the tree as generations have been cared for by the family ethos of our school. As our children grow the love, trust and support of those Christian roots enable them to find the courage to flourish in God’s world.
As a Christian school through our ‘Heads, Hearts and Hands’ varied and rich curriculum we inspire the children at Burford to be Rooted in Love, Growing in Trust, Blossoming with Courage, prepared to flourish in God’s World. We want our children to leave us prepared and excited for their futures.
Through our vision we have the following biblical references.
Rooted in Love ‘Love always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres’ Corinthians chpt 13:v7
Growing in Trust ‘Trust in your unfailing love.’ Psalm 13: v5
Blossoming with Courage ‘Do not be afraid, just believe.’ Gospel Of mark chpt5:v36
The school council and worship group work together to identify a value for each half-term. The children are encouraged to consider the importance of each value during whole-school assemblies.
Thank you to the carers in our community.
Each year we take part in the Christmas tree Festival at our church, St Mary’s Burford. As part of it we decorate a tree each year. This year Worship Group wanted to do something a bit different. They thought about the people in our local community who care for us and our families and community during the Christmas period and wanted to say ‘Thank you.’ Each class decorated a box and filled it with gifts for the staff and organisations to enjoy (coffee, tea, chocolate, biscuits etc). They were then displayed at the church in a shape to represent a tree. In the New Year we then handed them out to the different organisations. Some of the different organisations attended our Praise Assembly to receive their gifts. We gave them to Tenbury Hospital, Tenbury Firs Station, Sovereign Care, St Mary’s Church, Burford, The Old Rectory and Haresbrook Care Homes.
