We are very fortunate to be based in a very attractive and extensive old building which provides a fascinating learning environment for all our children. We have very good facilities including a field, three play areas, a large hall, a nurture room, a library and research room, a nature area, trolleys of laptop computers and large bright airy classrooms. The school is well resourced with good quality equipment and a very experienced, hard working and committed staff. We also have a Community Room which is used by a number of services, including Getset Services, to provide facilities for our children, parents and the wider community. We also use this space for music tuition, cookery and drama. This room is available for private hire, along with our Hall.
We seek to foster a love of learning in an exciting and friendly environment. We aim to help all our children feel safe and happy and part of our school family. Children are recognised as individuals and we seek to cater for their needs whatever their ability. We want them to develop at their pace and achieve the very best they can!
If you would like a paper copy of any of the documents on our website please contact the School Office. We will provide this free of charge.
The Curriculum we offer to children at Vallis First School is intended to develop the whole child; socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and intellectually and to provide the basic skills needed for life and work. We aim to develop enquiring minds and a spirit of curiosity and the skills to work independently and as a team. In particular the curriculum seeks:
Children stay in one class for the reception year and then move to Key Stage 1 where they stay in one class for Year 1 and Year 2. When they move on to Key Stage 2 they are in one class for Year 3 and Year 4.
