Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome to the Valley End C of E Infant School website where we would like to tell you more about our wonderful school.

Every child who comes to Valley End is nurtured and seen as an individual who will learn at a different pace at different times and will be supported and guided at the beginning of their long learning journey, which we believe will last all of their life. We provide the secure foundation of learning which is so important to ensure each child has the very best start to build upon.

In Early Years the children learn through play and opportunities to play carry on throughout the school. Every class has an outside area where children can use and develop their imagination which with skillful teaching translates into learning. There is lots of fun and excitement at Valley End both in and out of the classroom all year round.

As governors, we ensure that the children are at the very heart of all our decisions. We make sure that the best staff are appointed throughout the school and so have a fantastic team who inspire children, feeding their natural desire to learn. Many improvements continue to be made supporting learning in a secure and safe environment.

Valley End is judged by Oftsed as an outstanding school and we are very proud to be a school where the results are indeed outstanding. However, we do believe that behind every result there is a child who is cherished and given opportunities to grow in every way.

For many years I have spoken with children at Valley End and they tell me how much they have learned and how much fun they have had at Valley End. Our children are safe, happy and confident, which is what I wanted as a parent and will work with the superb team at school to ensure it continues.
