The original school was named in the memory of Rev Robert Morewood who was for twenty three years vicar of the Parish of Burton. He was a “warm promoter of the education and welfare of children”. Rev Morewood died in 1866, one year before the school bearing his name was opened.
We currently have 152 children on role (as at September 2007).
The school is light, airy and spacious. It comprises an entrance hall which leads through in to the main school hall. This has a polished wooden floor and is used for Physical Education, Drama, Assemblies, a variety of other school activities as well as school meals.
The PTA have worked with Governors to further enhance the outside facilities and have so far paid for two wonderful adventure play areas, as well as a Learning Walk around the school field.
- Equal opportunities for every child to develop their full potential enabling them to leave our school well prepared for the next stage of their educational, social and spiritual development,
- A curriculum which is broad and well balanced, responsive to the needs of the individual child and relevant to the wider world,
- A staff who are committed, motivated, caring and able to meet the school curriculum requirements,
- Resources that match the needs of the children and the school as fully as possible,
- Communications with parents which are open, effective and timely.
It is our belief that children are individuals and should be respected and as far as possible treated as such. We strive to provide a broad based, balanced, coherent curriculum which satisfies the needs of the pupils in our care. Children work at levels which are appropriate to their aptitude and capability. Children may be taught as a class, in groups or as an individual. A mixture of formal and informal methods is used to deliver the curriculum.
The National Curriculum provides the centre around which the school’s curriculum is built.
This is comprised of three Core Subjects, (English, Mathematics and Science), six Foundation Subjects (Art, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Music and Physical Education) and Religious Education. Information Technology is taught as part of each of the other subject areas as well as an individual subject. But we also try to enrich all that we offer.
We were delighted to be awarded an ‘Arts Mark Gold’ (2005) in recognition for our commitment to work in Music, Art, Dance and Drama. We also have an ‘FA Charter Standard for Schools Award’ for our football development and an Active Mark for our sporting provision. The school offers a number of activities, including French, netball, skiing, cricket, rounders, athletics, football, recorders, band, guitar and string lessons. We have a Dance Class, a Multi-Skills Club and a Drama Club which take place after school.
