Yeo Valley students

A very warm welcome to

YeoValley Primary School

We hope this website shows the wealth of opportunities, the passion for learning and the excitement and enthusiasm our school has to offer.

We are dedicated to helping our children become

  • Successful learners
  • Confident individuals and
  • Responsible citizens

Every child in our school is unique and we look to foster their individuality through building strong relationships based on trust and respect.

Our school is an exciting, happy place where everyone feels supported and where expectations are high.

The children are at the centre of the joint partnership between parents/carers and school and we believe that this relationship is crucial to enable the children to achieve their best.

It would be a pleasure to show you around our school. Visitors are always welcome.

 Extract from Ofsted Report 2011:

"The schools care, guidance and support are good and the curriculum on offer is relevant and exciting. This contributes significantly to the good progress made by individual pupils to overcome potential barriers to their learning. Pupils behave well and feel safe in school. The small number who have complex social and emotional needs receive close support to help manage and improve their behaviour and pupils recognise this. As one parent of a child with particular needs commented, Yeo Valley gave my child every fair chance and opportunity to flourish."
