Dean Valley Community Primary School
I am delighted to welcome you to Dean Valley Community Primary School, we are a one form entry thriving school in the community of Bollington.
Our aim as a Unicef Rights Respecting School is to develop every child's individual talent - whether academic, artistic or sporting. Our curriculum is diverse and offers our learners the chance to flourish in a safe, stimulating and exciting environment. We encourage our children to be active in their learning, voicing their thoughts and opinions with confidence and developing their skills to be independent learners from an early age.
Dean Valley is a family, with the children at the very heart of our school community and all that we do. The staff and governors work with parents to ensure that each child receives a rounded education where their mental and physical well-being is nurtured carefully alongside their academic, arts and sporting needs.
We encourage children to have high standards of behaviour showing respect to all, we are incredibly proud of our children who respond with enthusiasm and understand and live by values which mean a lot to them such as generosity, tolerance, kindness, non-discrimination and honesty.
Our grounds include an outdoor forest school classroom, pond, challenging climbing frames and amphitheatre allow children to enjoy outdoor learning - including the running a mile a day on our astro turf track which means we can complete the run no matter the weather!
Our committed staff run a wide range of extracurricular school activities and clubs including sewing, cross-country, baking, art and book clubs to name a few.
TheClub@DV offers wrap around care, both before and after school, our staff take care to make activities fun and to encourage play whilst creating a relaxed atmosphere. The Kitchen is also run by the school; children are a crucial part of designing healthy menus which always include a home cooked meal.
The support, enthusiasm and drive of all our committed staff mean that our children receive the best possible start to education and are prepared to face challenges ahead with a positive mind-set.
