About Us

Head's Welcome

May I offer you a very warm welcome to Sherford Vale School, the first Primary School to be established in the new town of Sherford!

I am privileged to be the Headteacher of this exciting new School as it becomes established at the very heart of the community and provides an exceptional place to learn, play and grow.  This website will offer you an insight into our plans for the School and how you and your children can become part of this amazing journey towards excellence.  This is a really exciting time as the building of our brand new School gets underway ready to open in September 2018 providing a stimulating, creative and lively learning environment within the building and school grounds.  Details of how you can secure a place for your child to join our School are on the Admissions page.

Children from Foundation to Year 6 will be able to join our School in September 2018 in addition to children entering the Nursery.  We are passionate that every child who attends Sherford Vale School will become the best that they can be and the staff will have the highest of expectations.  We will offer a broad, rich and vibrant curriculum with many opportunities for enrichment within and beyond the classroom.  Of course, English and Maths underpin the Primary Curriculum equipping children with the skills for life, however this will be enriched with our innovative “STAMP Curriculum” specialising in Science, Technology, Arts, Maths and PE.  The Curriculum will be delivered by outstanding teachers and staff in partnership with parents and carers.

Our School will provide before and after-school care with full access to our super grounds and sporting facilities.  Sherford Vale School will be part of the established and successful family of schools within Westcountry Schools Trust offering immediate opportunities for specialist teaching and inter-school sports.

We will regularly update this website with news and photographs.  Please use the Contact page to get in touch if you would like make suggestions or ask questions.

Together, I hope we can make Sherford Vale School a school that your children are proud to say “That’s my School!” and a community that your family are delighted to be part of.

Best wishes
