Burrsville Infant Academy

Create a Joy in Learning For Every Child


Burrsville Infant School was established in 1967. The school converted to an academy with the REAch2 Academy Trust in December 2013. Burrsville Infant 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. 

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.


Here are some photos from our World Book Day 2022 celebrations.

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



We are hosting a MacMillan Coffee Morning 

Please join us for our yearly coffee morning to help raise funds for Macmillan cancer support. We will host our event on 29th September in the school hall between 9am – 10.30am. You are very welcome to stay for the whole morning or just drop in for a quick cuppa and a piece of cake.

All donations of cakes etc will be gratefully received. Please hand them into the school office from Wednesday 28th September.

This event is for parents, carers and friends - our children will be busy learning in their classes. However, the school council will help us for part of the morning.  

If you would like to involve your child, you could always make a cake together to donate, or buy a nice piece of cake for them to enjoy after school.

We hope to see you there.

The results are in from our parent questionnaire!
