Aims, Ethos and Vision

Burnhope Primary School, strives to create a nurturing environment where each child feels valued. Being a small school means we know our families and children as individuals.


Located in a former pit village, only 8 miles from Durham, we value our rich heritage and have close links with our community.


Our Burnhope values are: Be Kind, Have Courage and Show Respect


School aims to provide a safe and stimulating environment which fosters positive attitudes, tolerance, and respect for others.  At Burnhope we value cultural capital and our children have many enriching experiences through trips, visitors in school, residentials and a broad curriculum.


With our extensive outdoor provision and careers learning we develop independence, resilience and raise aspirations which set children up for a successful future.
