Our Mission

Our mission describes our school's purpose. Our vision depicts our desired future. The principles needed to achieve our mission and vision are articulated in our values. Finally, the actions we need to demonstrate to make our mission, vision and values a reality are described in our collective commitments.

We have developed these statements in collaboration with our staff, students and families. They are part of our School Success Plan.


With the partnership of the home and community, we will facilitate the academic, social, physical and emotional development of each child. We do this by providing a safe, caring environment, which challenges each student and instills a love of learning, a quest for knowledge and respect for themselves and others.


At Burnt Elm, we are committed to a student-focussed learning environment that is positive, respectful, inclusive and safe. Through life-long learning, including a focus on the arts and technology, we will foster independent and collaborative critical thinking, academic success and the development of the whole child.
