Year 5 Egyptian Day

Dear Year 5 Parents/Carers

Unfortunately due to traffic problems, the school workshop company ‘Portals of the Past’ did not make it in for our Egyptian Day today.  Instead, the children spent the day creating Egyptian artwork.  We will be reorganising the Portals of the Past Workshop and will advise the new date as soon as this has been arranged.

Year 1 Homework

Dear Year 1 Parents,

After half term we will be sending out homework. Each Wednesday, all children will receive a piece of phonics/grammar homework. This needs to be returned to school on the following Monday.
Children will bring home their homework book and information sheet which will state which page of the homework book to complete each week. Please ensure that children only complete the page(s) set that week and do not complete any additional pages.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Mrs Azam and Miss Perry


Oak Class Forest School

Dear Oak Class Parents,

There will be no Forest School for Oak Class this week (Thursday 18th October) as Year 2 will be performing their Harvest Assembly to the rest of the school.

Pine Class will still have Forest School as usual on Wednesday (17th October).

Many thanks for your understanding,

Miss Perry

Year 3 Books

Dear Parents,

Further to earlier correspondence in regards to the homework books, we just wanted to confirm that the payment system for paying for the books is up and running.  Thank you to those parents who have already made their payments online.

We are aware that some parents may have already purchased the books so if you have done this, could you please notify Mr Farina or Miss Barnes so that we don’t go ahead and buy books that we don’t need.
This is also a polite reminder that if you had not made your payment, could you please do so.

Many thanks,
Miss Barnes and Mr Farina

Willow Class Hockey

Dear Parents
We are pleased to let you know that after half term on Tuesdays, Willow Class will be having lessons from Borlase PE and Hockey Specialist, Mrs Kate Porter. The sessions will start after half term and last until Christmas.  Therefore, from Tuesday 30th October, the children will need to have shinpads and a gumshield for hockey.
Thank you for your support.
Mrs Platt and Mrs Tucker


Mr Morris

Dear Parents

It is with regret I have to inform you that Mr Morris will be leaving Burford School at the beginning of November.  He has been fortunate enough to secure a position at Wycombe Wanderers Football Club – an opportunity too good for him to turn down.

We would like to thank Mr Morris for all his hard work over the last 18 months and wish him all the success in his new role.

Yours sincerely

Mr Garner
