‘Growing and learning together to be the best we can be’

Parent Meetings, Workshops and Helpful Tips

At Valley Primary School we feel it is vitally important to keep parents updated and aim to work closely with parents to ensure we jointly help the children develop further.


For key information about our curriculum please see our Curriculum pages under Key Information.


For year group specific information, please see our Year Group Pages under Children and choose your child's year group.


In addition to these, this page provides some helpful tips and information to help parents help their children educationally. This information is useful for parents of children across all year groups. 


We hope you find the information useful, this supplements but does not replace our parent workshops, meetings and consultations and we would still encourage you to attend these to enable first hand interaction and information sharing.
