Description of the school

This is a large school, and numbers have increased this year. Burlington caters for pupils from a diverse range of ethnic backgrounds.

Around a third of the pupils are from Asian or Asian British backgrounds and around a third are White British. A very high proportion of children join the school at an early stage of learning English as an additional language. The principal minority languages spoken are Tamil, Urdu and Korean.

Relatively few pupils have, mostly moderate, learning difficulties and/or disabilities. In addition to those who start the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in the Nursery, up to a third of the children join the school at the start of the Reception Year. Th...e school has a Children's Centre which opened in March 2007.
