Buriton Primary School is a small school situated in a village, mainly serving Buriton and Petersfield in Hampshire.
The number of children on roll is aproximately 94 and our children are aged four to eleven years. Apart from the Reception class, which has a maximum number of 15, all classes contain pupils from two year groups.
The school is housed in a Victorian building and has had two new classrooms recently built and despite the Victorian look of the school, inside it has a modern and friendly feel to it. The school has recently had a kitchen installed enabling school meals to be cooked onsite.
We work closely with the local community and use the village hall three afternoons every week for PE lessons, as well as using it for occasional whole school events such as performances by the children or from external theatre companies. We also take the children to the local church to celebrate Harvest and Christmas and our Christmas performances are open to the village community as are other events such as the Christmas and Summer Fairs.
We are very fortunate to have our own enclosed meadow which is over hung by a variety of trees and contains a pond for the children to enjoy and use as part of their learning. We also have a Timber Trail which is a very popular piece of school playground equipment and a wooden circular outdoor classroom, situated in our meadow. The Timber Trail has been built on an all weather surface to ensure maximum use throughout the year and is geared towards helping the children with balance, co-ordination and upper body strength. It aims to stretch children's minds and bodies and stimulate imagination and role play.
We are very proud of our achievements and the learning that takes place at Buriton Primary School. The school is characterised by a strong partnership between pupils, staff, parents and governors and a good relationship with the wider community. The staff and I will do all we can to explain school procedures and policies but please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions about our school or visit our website: www.buriton.hants.sch.uk.
