Welcome toSherford Vale School & Nursery

Welcome to Sherford Vale School and Nursery.  We are a one form entry school, with its own nursery, in the heart of the new town of Sherford, educating children from 2 to 11 years old. Sherford Vale School was opened in September 2018 and is growing rapidly, eventually to become a two form entry school with 420 pupils on roll. 

Our aim is to provide an outstanding education from the very first day by providing an inspiring, broad and rich curriculum that makes excellent use of the outdoor woodland and wildlife habitats in the local area. Children will have the opportunity to gain new knowledge through a range of opportunities that respond to their needs and interests; developing friendship, Oracy, sport, the academics and of course laughter!

We want our children to feel safe, secure and valued, where the success and happiness of every child enables them to become curious, inspired and knowledgeable learners.

We are proud to be a member of the Westcountry Schools Trust and the opportunities that the Trust, and collaboration between the schools, offer and support in our own school development and sharing of best practice.
