How We Communicate at Burton End

Communicating with our parents and carers is such an essential and important part of what we do. It is vital that all of the up-to-date information about our activities, newsletters, calendars, events and school news is relayed in a timely manner to our parents and carers. It is something that really matters to us.

Please see the communication tools we use at our school to enable the smooth and safe transference of information between school and home.

If you have any issues accessing these tools please contact the School Office.


Updates, copies of letters, newsletters and important information is sent via Arbor and will appear in your email inbox.

Please keep your email up to date so that you can continue to receive information; you can update your contact information by logging into your Arbor account. The school will receive notification of any changes.

Class Dojo

Class Dojo is a school communication platform to share learning that has taken place in classrooms through photos, videos and messages. The school will invite you via email to join class Dojo and once accepted you will see whole school and year group specific updates.

There is a messaging facility in the app. Please remember during the school day teachers are teaching and do not have time to pick up messages (these should be directed to the School Office). Teachers are able to pick up messages and reply between 8am and 5pm when they are not teaching Monday to Friday. Teachers will not reply to messages at weekends.

Burton Buzz

This is our fortnightly newsletter which includes lots of information for parents and carers about what is happening in school and what is coming up in the future.

The diary dates section is regularly updated. By sending one newsletter out every other week it saves the need for us to be sending lots of letters out individually.

Twitter and Facebook

Snippets of information and updates can be found here. If you have any urgent questions or messages, please do not message via social media as these are not monitored—please telephone the school office.

Community Noticeboard

This is at the front of the school. Our term dates are always available on there together with the latest edition of Burton Buzz and posters and information about other events that are happening.
