If your child receives a positive covid-19 test result while school is closed, during half term, it is essential that you inform us as soon as possible so that we can contact other families and arrange closure of a bubble if necessary.
The school office is closed so this must be done via email to the following account: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your email must state the name of the school and name of the pupil who has tested positive for covid-19. Somebody will then be in touch with you.

Welcome to Orchard Vale Community School!

We are based on the outskirts of Barnstaple North Devon, at the top of Whiddon Valley industrial estate. We currently have around 350 pupils learning with us which includes a 52 place Nursery.
At Orchard Vale we have three core aims:
- High quality education through a culture of learning for all
- Commitment to working with and for our community

From our Nursery through to our year 6 classes, we aim to deliver high quality education through our broad and balanced curriculum so our pupils are articulate, confident and relish new challenges.
