Welcome to Valley Road School. The pages of this web site should give you a good idea about the school. If you wish to visit then in "normal" times we would ask you to contact the office at the above address and phone number to make an appointment. However, for obvious reasons, at the moment we are not doing this. I am very happy to chat to you on the phone and answer any questions you may have. The conversations can be pre-booked by ringing the office and will last for fifteen minutes. It is no substitute for visiting the school, but it is a way for you to have your questions answered. I am happy to show you around after school and contact the office if this is something you would like. No more than two people per visit and it will, again, last fifteen minutes.
We know this is a highly unusual situation and it is important for you to know that everything we do is geared towards making your child feel as comfortable as possible. This has always been our ethos, but even more so now. We work with you to ensure they get the best we can offer. Our staff always go the extra mile for the children entrusted in our care. We know they are the most precious thing in your life and their positive start in life is paramount.
As part of the challenge of COVID 19, we have updated our Safeguarding Policy. A copy is available on request should it be needed.
We are all here should anyone need support and help. We have also, along with all other schools, been asked to put the web address for Childline on our front page:
