Burrsville Infant Academy

Create a Joy in Learning For Every Child

School is now closed for the Summer Holidays

We would like to wish all our families and staff a safe and happy summer break and look forward to seeing you all in September. 

Our Year 2 Leavers Assembly!

The children have worked really hard learning songs, writing memories and practicing their words. We really hope you enjoy!

Year 2 we are so proud of you and wish you all lots of luck for the future.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Greene and Mrs OReilly :) 


Sports Day 2021

Here are a few photographs taken during our Sports Day this year. 

Thank you to everyone who gave donations to Shelter.  As we have been unable to invite parents/carers etc into school for our Christmas performances, we have recorded it for you all to see.  So please click the link below to view our Christmas Spectacular. 


Is your child due to start school in September 2021? Click on the link below to learn more about what we offer at Burrsville Infant Academy.



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 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.

Take a look at our 7 before 7 Video

We want to share with you a video that has been produced as part of the promotion of 11 before 11. Whilst the video may only show what is happening in a handful of our schools, we have seen evidence of the true commitment of our staff across all schools during the pandemic.  The video can be accessed via this link https://vimeo.com/437907010/b5407f8e94



On Tuesday 10th March we will be launching our new 3PR Parking Scheme.  

We have had a special assembly where we met 3PR.  Please check your child's book bag for the letters and information book which were sent home on Tuesday 3rd March.   

Please help us to make the roads around our school safer by parking a little further away and walking into school.
