It is this dedication which led to the school achieving both the Inclusion Quality Mark and Centre of Excellence status in both 2017 and 2018.

Burnt Oak Primary School prides itself on its highly creative curriculum and the extensive extra-curricular activities which it offers pupils. Teachers are encouraged to be innovative and to engage pupils through exciting learning opportunities.  Testament to the high quality of this curriculum are our recent Gold Sports Games and Best Literacy Innovation Awards.

As a result of good teaching and effective support, children get off to a good start to their learning in early years.  As a school we have high expectations of our pupils and have over the last 2 years increased the proportion of pupils achieving 'expected' in reading, writing and maths by 30%.
