Welcome to Vale Infant School

About us

The school is continuing to work on the National Healthy School Standard and was validated at the Enhanced Level in June of this year. In addition to the scrutiny of whole school management and efficiency there are four areas which need to be evaluated including the provision for the emotional health and well being of our staff and pupils. The range of opportunities available to our pupils for physical activity is another area to be assessed by the Validator.

Healthy eating is another focus which means that we educate our pupils to try and ensure that they have a healthy lifestyle in the future. Finally our provision within school for the personal, social and health education for our pupils along with citizenship will also be assessed. We are very grateful for all the support that has been given to our school by the outside agencies in the delivery of PSHE and Citizenship and to the Health Promotion Unit who have provide training for the staff and guidance for new initiatives.

The school has strong links with the local community. The Primary Association for Christian Education, Reverend Anita Hart form St Paul’s Church and Reverend Northover from the Vale Parsih Church lead assemblies once a month.

There are currently 3 reception classes.  The children in our reception follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum.

There are six areas in the Foundation Stage Curriculum:  Communication, Language and Literacy; Creative Development; Knowledge and Understanding of the World;  Mathematical Development

Year One

There are currently 3 "Year 1" classes.  The children follow "Key Stage 1" of the National Curriculum.  This key stage covers Years 1 and 2.


The work in the Year 1 is, to begin with, grouped under topic headings, beginning with ‘Ourselves’.  For example, in Science, the children identify and locate parts of the body, recognise changes that take place as animals get older, and compare humans with other animals.  They also learn about sound and hearing. Later, children study ‘The World around Us’.  They learn about materials and about different forces, and in the summer, about growing and light and dark.

Throughout the year, in Literacy lessons, the children are introduced to a wide variety of texts, both fiction and non fiction as they work on improving their reading, writing, speaking and listening and library skills.  In Numeracy lessons they improve their counting skills, enjoy solving number problems and work with measures and shapes.

ICT in Year 1 includes labelling and classifying, assembling text, creating pictures and representing information graphically by creating pictograms. Children learn how ICT is used for communications, as a source of information and for control of various machines and toys.  

RE work comes under the headings of ‘Sharing’ and ‘Light and Celebrations’, ‘the Bible’, ‘Welcoming Ceremonies’, ‘Creation’ and ‘the Church’. PSHE lessons include discussion about class and school rules, health and growth, caring for others & the environment, keeping safe and family and friends. 

Art work includes colour mixing, investigating patterns, drawing and painting self portraits, as well as work with materials, and sculpture.  In D&T they work with fruit, make moving pictures and models of playgrounds.

In History the children enjoy learning about ‘Toys of the Past’.  Mr Brehaut brings a wonderful collection of toys to school and the children visit Candie Museum to see, and play with, some of the old toys there.  Later they learn about Captain James Cook and homes in the past. 

Year 1 children explore the geography of their school, their island and the British Isles with the help of Barnaby Bear.  

In music lessons they learn about different sounds and instruments, about pitch and length of sounds, about beat and rhythm, timbre, tempo and dynamics. They also have singing lessons.  In P.E. they improve their ball skills as well as enjoying gymnastic work, games, dance and swimming.

Year Two

There are two year two classes. Mrs Cooper's class and Mrs Cameron's class. The children in year two follow the National Curriculum.
