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 2016, the Local Authority asked our school to extend our EYFS by another 30 places and we admitted 90 children into our EYFS. 

Each July we send our Year 2 children to Great Clacton Junior School.  The Junior School is on our site but is managed independently.

 Miss Siggery joined our team as our deputy, in September 2013 and became Head of School in 2014. In September 2018, Miss Siggery became Headteacher at Burrsville. 

The school is very proud of the facilities and success enjoyed over the past few years.


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

Dance Festival

On Wednesday 31st January,  Miss Poole and Ms Green took 10 children to the Camulos Academy in Colchester to perform on stage at the REAch2 Dance Festival event.  Our children were the only Infant School to take part and danced their little socks off.  Please take a look at our video of the children taking part.  We are all so very 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.
