Governing Body

 

BCPS Governors

The Governing Body of Burnham Copse Primary School extend a warm welcome to you.

We believe in working together to build a future – we really believe that by working closely with you, we can give your child the best start in life. We are committed to encouraging our children to achieve the very best of their ability, and to enjoy the process whilst they do.

But academic achievement is only part of your child’s development.  We also want to equip each child with the skills they need for life – easing the eventual transition to secondary school, and instilling a lifelong passion for learning.  Opportunities are available in each year to enrich your child’s school experience through trips, sport and leisure activities as well as developing confidence to clearly articulate views and opinions.

We value our position within the community of Tadley and Baughurst, offering a venue for community activities. We have a thriving parent association raising additional funds for the school, and an excellent out of hours school club to help working parents.

Whilst our website can give you a flavour of what our school is like, nothing compares to seeing it for yourself, so please do contact us at any time to arrange a visit.

We hope that our children, and their parents, enjoy their time at Burnham Copse Primary, and leave with a sense of achievement, a balanced education and many happy memories.
