Message from Mrs Powell, Headteacher

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as Headteacher of Burlington Church of England Primary and Nursery School.

We are a happy and caring school situated on the edge of the beautiful Lake District with stunning views across the Duddon Estuary, Langdales and Kirkby Moor.

Parents, pupils, Governors and staff place a very high value on high standards and excellent behaviour. We want our children to be happy and enjoy their learning in an environment that caters for all and respects others. we want our pupils to develop confidence and pleasure in learning and to evolve the personal positive attitudes of respect for others.

We place a great deal of value on the children enjoying education, trips, visitors, exciting lessons and activities will be common place. I know the children will thoroughly enjoy the process. There is nothing more important than our children. We put them first, work together and ensure they get the best. That is what we intend to do every day.

I am proud of our children, school and of our community.

Sarah Powell, Headteacher
