Firstly, a huge thanks to all who completed their survey about the possible school re-opening. We are hoping to go ahead with the reopening the week beginning the 1st June and have been busy planning to do this in a safe way minimising risk to all.
If you requested a place for your child you will receive a letter via email about opening instructions and how it will work and we look forward to seeing you soon.
If you have not requested a place for your child, home learning will continue as usual, via Tapestry/Seesaw, and we thank you for your continued support in staying home and staying safe.
Please do not hesitate to contact us, in the usual way, if you have any concerns or queries.
Welcome to Orchard Vale Community School!
At Orchard Vale we believe that education should be inspiring for all children whatever their age and encourage them to be confident individuals with a deep love of learning!
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
- Developing an understanding and commitment to sustainability
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.

DCC are committed to working together to help and support local people to get through this outbreak. They are working with town and parish councils, voluntary and community groups, and local businesses to help us build this response.
The single most important thing we can all do to help fight the coronavirus outbreak is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.
