Welcome to our website
Burrsville Infant School was established in 1967. The school converted to an academy with the REAch2 Essex Trust in December 2013. Burrsville Academy is situated on the Birds Estate in Great Clacton and welcomes children from our catchment area around the coastal village of Great Clacton.
We operate a two form entry which means each September we welcome 60 children into our Early Years classes, Maple and Rowan. In July 2015, the Local Authority asked our school to extend our EYFS by another 30 places. In September 2015, we opened an additional classroom, which we have named Birch. We were asked to admit 90 children into our reception classes again in September 2016.
Each July we send our Year 2 children to Great Clacton Junior School. The Junior School is on our site but is managed independently.
Mrs Harper became our Headteacher in September 2012 and Miss Siggery joined our team as our deputy, in September 2013. The school is proud of the facilities and success enjoyed over the past few years.
Mrs Harper is now the Executive Head at Burrsville and Unity Primary Academy based in Colchester. Miss Siggery is the Head of School at Burrsville.
If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we are happy to provide this free of charge.
REAch2 Touchstones at Burrsville Infant Academy
On Thursday 16th March, Miss Siggery, Miss Poole and Mrs Hammerton took 23 children to the Corn Exchange in Ipswich to perform on stage at the REAch2 Gleeastanglia event. Our children were the only Infant School to take part and sang their hearts out. Please take a look at our video of the children taking part. We are all so proud of them all. Well done.
On Thursday 13th July, Miss Poole and Mrs Hammerton took 2 children to HMS Belfast to perform at the REAch2 Headteacher's Conference. Again our children sung their little hearts out. Please take a look our videos of them taking part. You made us so proud yet again.
