Sherford ValeSchool and Nursery


Sherford Vale School and Nursery is a primary setting, which opened on September 5th, 2018 to serve the new community of Sherford and children from the local area.  At present, we are a one form entry setting but will expand to a two form entry setting over time. From September 2024 there will be two EYFS classes and two Year 3 classes. In all other year groups we are currently at capacity. 

We educate children from the age of 2 years old until they are 11 years old.  If you would like to visit our school to learn more about us, please speak to Mrs Biggs in the school office (01752 891795) who will make an appointment for you.

Apply for a place for your child now. We will respond to requests for places as soon as possible. As the school roll increases, we will recruit more teachers.

Our current class structure is set out below. However, as numbers on roll increase the structure will change as required. This may be through mixed years groups, changing mid-year until the school is at full capacity (420 excluding Nursery).
