Co-Head Teachers' Welcome


On behalf of the staff and local School Standards Board, we would like to welcome you personally to our school website.

At The Vale, we are committed to ensuring every child strives for excellence. Here we promote a passion for life-long learning through an enriched curriculum that is active, purposeful and challenging in a nurturing environment.  There are also many extracurricular opportunities in sport, drama productions, outdoor learning and music. 

A central pillar of our curriculum is the effective implementation of the Thrive approach, which supports our children to have the mental health and well-being to be successful learners and well-rounded citizens for the 21st century.

All of us at The Vale are incredibly proud of our children and their behaviours for learning that demonstrate our Vale Learner qualities:

  • Being Caring
  • Being Safe
  • Being Respectful
  • Being Ready
  • Being Resilient
  • Being Reflective
  • and Embracing Challenge


Our motto 'Inspiring All' is reflected in our commitment from staff, school standard board members, parents and children all working to create a school where together we can achieve and flourish.

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions parents make. We hope this website will give you a flavour of our school and its achievements. If you are a prospective parent looking for a school, please see the Admissions page for further information. Visits are warmly welcomed and encouraged; we would be happy to show you around.

If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you would like a paper copy of the information on this website (free of charge), please contact the school office.  

If there are any questions or you require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us.  Likewise, should you need any documents printed, please do contact us at
