Our School

Welcome to the Vale Primary School website! 

As a school, children are at the centre of all that we do and we value them as unique individuals. We aim to provide a happy and safe learning environment where every child can achieve their best in all areas of the curriculum. In our school, we use our Vale Values to ensure we ‘Value All Learners Equally.’

It is the primary aim of our school that every member of our community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We aim to develop a caring school community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. We aim to promote good relationships, so that people can work together with the common purpose of helping everyone to learn and reach their full potential. We aim to help children to grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become positive, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.

We are a three-form entry primary school with around 480 pupils across both departments – infants and juniors. Pupils transfer to the junior department at the end of Year 2. These transition points for our pupils are important and we do our best to ensure that effective procedures and support are in place, not only when pupils join our school, but also as they move through the different year groups.

We believe that:

  • Children are of equal worth whatever their background or beliefs.
  • All members of the school should be treated and treat others with respect.
  • Pupils learn in different ways and at different speeds.
  • Each pupil will be equally valued as an individual learner.
  • Teachers and parents are partners in their child’s education.

The aims of the school are:

  • To provide a safe, caring environment of equal opportunity where pupils can grow and develop intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.
  • To encourage pupils to value themselves and each other.
  • To encourage pupils to become successful, independent learners, who are confident, enthusiastic, always striving to achieve high standards.
  • To foster pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • To encourage pupils to value the environment both natural and shaped by humanity.
  • To offer a wide range of opportunities for pupils to effectively contribute towards their learning and achievements and the learning of others.
  • To encourage pupils to be responsible citizens who value truth, justice, human rights, the rule of law and collective effort for the common good.
  • To prepare pupils for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of the next phase of education and for adult life.
