A very warm welcome to
YeoValley Primary School
We hope this website shows the wealth of opportunities, the passion for learning and the excitement and enthusiasm our school has to offer.
We are dedicated to helping our children become
- Successful learners
- Confident individuals and
- Responsible citizens
Every child in our school is unique and we look to foster their individuality through building strong relationships based on trust and respect.
Our school is an exciting, happy place where everyone feels supported and where expectations are high.
The children are at the centre of the joint partnership between parents/carers and school and we believe that this relationship is crucial to enable the children to achieve their best.
It would be a pleasure to show you around our school. Visitors are always welcome.
