Love our neighbour,
enabling everyone to shine
and make a difference
in the world

Burton Leonard Church of England (VC) Primary School

At Burton Leonard C of E (VC) Primary School, our vision is "to love our neighbour, enabling everyone to shine and make a difference in the world."

The inspiration for our vision comes from the Parable of the Good Samaritan; "love your neighbour as yourself." Luke 10:27.

Every person matters at our school and everyone is nurtured as individuals to shine and make a difference in the world. We are part of a vibrant, village community. We love and care for each others and all are welcome.

The Good Samaritan shares our school values of courage, love and service. The Good Samaritan demonstrated courage by being the person that made a difference. He demonstrated love in his ability to support and care for the injured man. We encourage all to take inspiration from the Good Samaritan, loving our neighbours as he did and providing service to others. We ask ourselves, Who is our neighbour? and How can we shine together?

Our school is a special, warm and inspiring place of learning. We pride ourselves on the close relationships we have with our families, the Church and local community. We are proud to be a part of the community and the people we serve. Come and visit to see how brightly all at Burton Leonard shine!

We hope that you find everything you are looking for on our website. Please feel free to contact Mrs Drake, our School Business Manager, if you have any questions or queries.  We are always happy to help. 

We look forward to welcoming you and would encourage all to come and visit us to find out more about what makes Burton Leonard the unique place that it is.

    Design & Technology

    Design and Technology is a hands on, inspiring, practical subject. At Burton Leonard, we intend to build a curriculum which is inspiring, rigorous and practical. We encourage children to take risks and learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. Children are given opportunities to acquire appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum. We want Design and Technology to prepare our children, to give them opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences they need to be successful in later life. This involves the children learning about the world we live in and developing a wide range of knowledge and skills through designing and making.
