Working with families
We were thrilled to receive a letter from The RT Hon Nick Gibb MP - Minister of State for School Standards. This was to congratulate everyone on the very high level of progress our Y6 children made last year. We are amongst the top 3% of all primary schools across the country. Please see below for the letter.
FANTASTIC NEWS - NUMBER ONE SCHOOL IN SUNDERLAND!
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.
