Injuries at School
It is unavoidable with 500 pupils at school that injuries and accidents happen. We always maintain a team of staff members with current first aid certificates ready to help as needed.
Our school procedure when dealing with a head knock or head injury is that we will always phone parents to let them know. Even if it seems like a minor head knock and everything seems okay we will let you know so you can be aware if anything crops up later in the day.

now what learning is
Valley kids show "courage” when it comes to learning. Students know how to be prepared for learning, what tools they need and the right attitude to bring to all learning situations.
Valley kids show respect for themselves and each other. They have a strong sense of "honour” and do what is morally right. They are the most important part of the Valley School community.
iscover their individuality
Valley kids are "loyal”. They can be relied upon to participate and contribute in all learning situations. They are curious about the world and willing to take risks with their learning.
trive for success
Valley kids always show a ‘can-do’ attitude. They set learning goals and strive to achieve them. They show "endurance” in all they do by demonstrating stamina and determination.
