Vision, Values & Principles

We will develop articulate and thoughtful children - all children will be able to talk confidently about their own ideas and hopes for their future.

We will provide a broad and balanced curriculum - all children will leave Burton End with good memories of broad and balanced learning experiences, including music, computing, sports and art. 

We will have consistently high aspirations - children will leave Burton End being able to read, write and apply their mathematical knowledge at the national expectation of ‘Secondary ready’, with an increasing percentage each year, of children exceeding this expectation.

The Samuel Ward Academy Trust Values underpin all that we do across the Trust and here at Burton End. You will see the Values displayed around the school, taught in assemblies and discussed in lessons.  The SWAT Values are
