Welcome and School Ethos

A message from the Head Teacher

Welcome to Burrowmoor School!

Burrowmoor is a very popular, successful primary school situated in the rural market town of March. It offers extremely high standards of education for children aged between 2 and11 years, with before school, after school and holiday care available each week day between 8 am and 6 pm.

School Ethos

Burrowmoor is primarily a place for pupils, family, staff, governors and the community to learn together in partnership in an atmosphere of co-operation and understanding.

We believe that every individual brings different experiences and strengths to our school that are valuable. We aim to build on these by offering an education that is stimulating, appropriate and challenging.

We 'Aim for Excellence' in everything that we do and set high expectations in all that we achieve.

We encourage children to learn from first hand experience and to take an active part in the learning process. We want children to develop academically, personally and socially. We aim to deliver a broad based curriculum to all of our children, to foster in them a love of learning and an understanding and respect for the world in which they live.

We aim to provide an open, welcoming and stimulating environment in which every child feels safe, valued and happy.

We encourage parents and the wider community to take an active interest in the education of all our children and to feel an ownership of their school.

We welcome your continued support as we share with you our vision for the school.


Our values

We recognise each school is different - we don't look to impose a corporate style or identity on schools but we do have a common approach to maintaining the highest expectations.

We believe our role is to help schools achieve excellence through the provision of support, advice and challenge of the highest quality.

We are committed to a collaborative approach to our work, based on a shared understanding of what needs to be done, by whom and by when in order to maximise the impact of our work.

The Active Learning Trust seeks to promote a tolerant and informed view of the world and holds no political, cultural or religious affiliations. These core values underpin our commitment to provide the highest quality education for all our pupils so that they can go on to live fulfilling and responsible lives as active citizens.   

We will always be open and honest in our communication and welcome feedback.

We always do what we say we will do.

We will strive for excellence and quality in everything we do.

Our staff can expect support and advice of the highest quality, clarity about the expectations we have of them and the right and responsibility to share successes and concerns.

We believe pupils in schools that are part of the Trust have the right to an excellent education and a responsibility to positively take part in school and community life to the best of their ability.

We believe that parents are an important part of a child's education and it is the responsibility of the Trust and schools to engage positively with parents to secure their support to raise attainment.

We believe that strong Local Boards, acting as part of the Trust's monitoring and evaluation of progress, are key partners to success.
