Dear Parents, Carers and members of the wider community

Derwent Vale Primary and Nursery School is a school that is firmly at the heart of its community. We are a school where individuals are valued and children, parents, staff and governors work tirelessly to achieve together.

We are a happy and successful school that is committed to children’s well-being, high academic achievement and developing a sense of community. We take great pride in the inclusive and nurturing environment that we provide and which allows our children to grow into confident, resilient and inquisitive individuals.

We have an exciting curriculum that is carefully sequenced to provide the foundations of learning that give our children the knowledge and skills to be successful. We place great emphasis on enriching the curriculum with visitors, educational visits, memorable moments and residential experiences.

I would love to invite you to come and have a look around our fantastic school and look forward to building successful partnerships with our wonderful families and children.

Mr D Lucey BA Hons, PGCE, QTS, NPQH
