For a comprehensive introduction to the school including its strengths, values, day-to-day organisation and activities please download a copy of the School Prospectus. Alternatively contact us to request a copy.  Look out for information about Open Days for Prospective Parents or arrange a guided tour of the school with the Head Teacher, Mrs Brown.

PTA (Parent Teacher Association)


The school has a fantastic PTA known as the Friends of Buriton Primary School

The Friends organise various events during the year and the school is indebted to their efforts.  For more information and to download a copy of their latest newsletter, please see our Friends page.


Home - School  Partnership


We believe that a strong partnership between the school and home is essential to ensure children make good progress in school.  Children regularly bring work home for parents to see and the school actively provides opportunities to celebrate achievements e.g. family assemblies.  All parents are invited to sign a ‘Home - School’ agreement outlining the principles of this partnership but direct contact with parents is also welcomed.  Informal contact with the class teacher at the beginning or end of the school day or an appointment can be made to discuss matters relating to your children.  Appointments for parents to meet with staff to discuss progress are offered each term and a written report is sent during the summer term.

Learning at Home


In the early years staff will be able to provide guidance as to how to support your child’s learning e.g. with reading and maths games.  As your child progresses through the school clear guidance for children and parents regarding homework tasks is given and a copy of the school’s homework policy is available.
