As we are sure you appreciate the safety of our children is of upmost importance and with this in mind we will be enforcing the locking of the playground gates at 8.50am every morning. Please could we ask you to ensure your child is in class before 8.45am for the register and that all parents must leave the class/playground by this time. If you arrive after this time please enter via the school office.

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.
