Right of the Month - January
Article 14: Your right to follow your own religion
We first opened in 1908 with just 14 children. We were then called Burnage Municipal Mixed and Infant School, catering for children aged from 5 to 14 years of age. The school was in a house named ‘The Acacias’ which was built in the middle of the 19th century by a Mr Dyer, who also built Burnage Hall, and the house was given to the children of Burnage.
In 1933 the school was renamed Burnage Juniors and Infants, but was always known as ‘The Acacias’. Following the reorganisation of schools in 1966-67 the school was then officially renamed Acacias County Primary School. In 1972 the old house was knocked down and a new school extension was built on the site. The school was extended in 1986 when a purpose built Nursery was added to the school site and a range of prefabricated classrooms have been utilised over a period in excess of 40 years. In this time the school became a community school which reflected how the school sees itself, as an integral part of the local community. In February 2012 we moved into our new school building and the children now learn in an environment designed to support and enhance that learning.
We regard everyone associated with the school as a member of the school community. Parents and carers are an essential component of our school and it is a well known fact that children learn more effectively when parents and carers and the school work closely together. Governors are dedicated to Acacias and are also very much part of our team. We all work together within the community we serve to provide the best possible educational start for all our children.
