Bure Valley School is part of the Aylsham Learning Federation (ALF). A federation of schools that include Bure Valley, Aylsham High and John of Gaunt Infant & Nursery. This exciting and innovative federation supports the learning of children from nursery through to year 11. All ALF schools are members of The Aylsham Cluster Trust, which is made up of nine local schools, who work cooperatively to raise educational standards and improve the quality of life for our children and their families.

Bure Valley School has an excellent staff, superb facilities and great pupils. The support that we enjoy from parents and the wider community is second to none. We aim to create a caring environment, for children in year three through to year six, in which every child feels safe, happy, valued and able to achieve personal success.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, self-motivated and committed full time classroom assistant to join our team on a permanent basis. You will be part of a pleasant, varied and interesting working environment with an already well-established team.

Personal qualities are of paramount importance and the person appointed will be reliable and display good energy and humour. You should also have good literacy and numeracy skills and the ability to work independently as well as part of a busy team.

In addition to general classroom support, we are looking for someone who ideally has the capacity and experience to support a vulnerable pupil on a one to one basis. Someone who has a sound knowledge and understanding of social emotional and mental health needs; who can help to develop strategies that will support pupils to manage and self-regulate their behaviour at school.

If you would like to join a successful and genuinely warm and friendly Federation with a tremendous community attitude, then we would love to hear from you. Visits to our school are welcomed by appointment.
