Sing Up Day


Sing Up sets aside an extra special day to celebrate the power of song and spread a little singing. From the UK to the UAE and the US to China, schools and singers join us from around the globe on Sing Up Day.

In 2021, the Sing Up Day anthem is  (We are) Unstoppable - a catchy, contemporary, upbeat anthem with a serious message about change. Recognising that everybody can make a difference, however small, and that small actions can add up to make a big difference. We all have power to help build a better world, and we are more powerful when we come together.


 We are incredibly proud to be represented this year, by our amazing singers in Year 4 -  click on the link for the video on our website.

School Term Dates 2021-2022





This week 'The Chronicle' published their annual Real Schools Guide, which picks out the top ten schools in each area. We are absolutely delighted in being named number one school in Sunderland! This really reflects our school motto - 'Success for All'. We know our children love attending Valley Road and every single member of staff works tirelessly to make sure each child receives the best education, care and support they need to achieve, not only academically, but socially and emotionally. We are proud to represent the local community; we always say we are one big school family, sharing the same values and learning together so it is fantastic to have the school and the local area represented in such a positive way. Our success would not be possible without the ongoing support from our families - let's keep up the good work together.
