Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Valley End C of E (VC) Infant School

Valley End C of E Infant School is a very special place.  The school has a family feel and everything that we do is underpinned by excellent teaching and learning and our strong, deeply embedded Christian values. At Valley End we are a ‘Caring Christian Learning Community’. We dedicate ourselves to serving the children and families and make it our mission to ensure that everyone can flourish.

We believe in educating the ‘whole child’ and we are committed to encouraging children to work to high academic, spiritual and social standards. We insist on excellent behaviour and we aim for all of our children to leave us as confident, well rounded, thoughtful and caring individuals.  Valley End pupils leave our school with a love of learning and a strong ability to work both independently and collaboratively. Our pupils learn to think about others and they develop a strong sense of respect for the views and beliefs of others.

At Valley End we believe in encouraging children to know how they learn best. Pupils need to understand why learning is important and to be as involved as much as possible in their own learning. We get to know each pupil extremely well, recognise their potential, tailor individual learning needs and support each pupil’s learning with high quality teaching, learning and resources. We offer an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum that is enriched by visitors, educational visits and memorable experiences. Children feel safe and happy in school and they look forward to coming to school every day. We also offer services that extend the day in the mornings with our Morning Club as well as a range of extra-curricular after school learning opportunities. Through external after school providers we can also facilitate after school care from 3-6pm every day.

Valley End is extremely well supported by parents and governors and the school plays a vital role in the local community. As a church school, we have a very close link with St Saviour’s Church, Valley End. The children regularly visit the church and enjoy special services led by the Vicar of St Saviour’s.

If you would like to visit Valley End C of E Infant School, I would welcome the opportunity to show you around our lovely school. Please contact the office on 01276 858299 or email I can guarantee that you will not want to leave!

Kind regards,

Mrs Harper-Cole
