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 340 pupils learning with us which includes a 52 place Nursery.
At Orchard Vale, every adult strives to instil a sense of pride in our children where they will leave us with a sense of belonging and can identify with their personal achievements. We regard our children as resilient, motivated and happy learners and aim that they leave our school with skills for life. We are proud to celebrate the individuality and uniqueness of all children and staff in our school. In order to do all the above, we recognise that children need to feel safe and cared for and create a sense of positive nurture through the school. We are open and honest and welcome participation and co-operation with our whole community.
· Developing individuals with safety and care
· Environment based on openness and honesty
From our Nursery through to our year 6 classes, we aim to deliver high quality education through quality first teaching. Through careful planning, we ensure that we offer a broad and balanced curriculum with enriching opportunities to ensure that children leave us as happy, lifelong learners.
