Dear Parents, Carers and members of the wider community
Welcome to Derwent Vale Primary & Nursery School, a vibrant and thriving school with high academic and behavioural expectations of all our pupils.
We are a happy and successful school, where staff work as a strong team towards a common aim to provide a rich and relevant educational experience for all pupils. We believe that children are entitled to a primary education that offers quality, breadth of experience, standards of excellence, developing a sense of community and British values. We strive to provide an inclusive, nurturing environment in which children can grow and mature into confident, responsible, resilient young people, aspiring towards high levels of personal attainment and achievement.
Parents and carers are always welcome into school to discuss any issues or concerns. We have an open door policy.
We believe in the value of family within school. We pride ourselves on the strong partnership which exists between parents, pupils, staff, governors and the local community. We aim to develop the highest standards of behaviour and self-discipline where the rights and feelings of all are respected. We work hard to provide our children with the best possible life chances, and to be proud of themselves and their efforts as special, unique individuals.
Mrs Frances Edmondson
