Supporting your Child at Home


"The most able pupils achieve well because they are given challenging work to do and much is expected of them."


Bure Valley School has great links with families and the local community.

All parents and carers are equally valued as part of our school community.

Children’s learning is improved when we work in partnership with parents, carers, and the wider family. We believe in close cooperation with all families, and in regular consultation between the home and the school.

Involvement in children’s learning

Parents and carers can to talk with teachers before and after school on an informal basis on most days. Appointments to see a teacher or the head of school can be made through the school office, and can be set up for as soon as required in most instances.

Every term, there is an opportunity for parents to have a formal discussion with their child(ren)’s teacher. Teachers value these opportunities to celebrate successes, review learning targets and listen to parental views.

Curriculum letters are sent to each family at the start of each term, detailing the aspects of learning each child will undertake, and how families might support that learning.

Family Learning Days

Once a term families are invited to Bure Valley to a Family Learning event which is a great way for families to come along and join in with their child's learning.

An annual Aylsham Cluster Trust Family Learning Day is held in June every year for families to enjoy as well.

In October School Parent Associations (SPA) plan an exciting outdoor Family Learning Day at Blickling and another one in April at Woodgate Nursery.
