Yeo Valley Primary School

A primary school with deep historical roots.

Yeo Valley Primary School (YVPS) was founded in 1900, first as a recreation centre for the nearby textile factory, then as a wartime hospital and later a boys' secondary modern school before being established as a primary school in the 1970s. Still very much a community school, with its own nursery, YVPS accommodates 230 children from the surrounding area, aged from 2 to 11.
YVPS is part of the Cornerstone Academy Trust, a multi-academy trust that provides 21st century education as well as professional teacher training through the Cornerstone Teaching School and has developed a local, national and international reputation for its innovative use of IT and digital media.
Digital tools are going to be a critical part of your child’s future. Whether your child is using a computer to edit video, a waterproof device to collect data outdoors, or developing literacy, free thinking, creative and communication skills, the ethos of YVPS is to use the technology alongside excellent teaching to provide an outstanding education, packed with opportunity. However, balance is very important in education, as in all areas of life. The children will also play and learn outdoors as well as in sports teams and they have the chance to sing in a choir, play a musical instrument and learn to cook.

Empowering students of today to create the world of tomorrow.

YVPS is part of The Cornerstone Academy Trust, a forward-thinking digital academy that is transforming the classroom experience through the incorporation of Microsoft technology enhancing student centred learning and to achieve better outcomes for all pupils. Staff can focus on delivering personalised learning experiences that empower students to be independent and creative learners, whilst building skills that will prepare them for the future.
