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.

Please join Maria Wright, our Family Wellbeing Practitioner. It is a lovely opportunity to meet her and other parents to have a chat, a cuppa and of course a biscuit or two!
