Our Aims, Vision & Values
Our Mission Statement:
At Burntstump Seely we endeavour to create a positive, inspirational and nurturing experience in an environment of mutual respect. This is embedded in our inclusive Christian community where we welcome families of all faiths or none. We ensure that everyone is valued and encouraged to reach their full personal and academic potential. We provide a broad, balanced and creative curriculum to thoroughly prepare children for life in the modern world.
