We are very proud of our latest inspection report. Please see the extract below:
Pupils feel safe and happy at Calder Vale school. They are able to grow, learn and explore together in this small school which sits at the heart of the rural community. Leaders’ high expectations are shared by governors and staff. They are ambitious for all pupils to be successful. Pupils achieve well in a range of subjects. Parents and carers speak highly of the school and would recommend it to others. Children in the early years thrive in the nurturing environment that leaders have created. They enjoy learning and playing with the other pupils in the school. Pupils are polite and well mannered. Pupils said that behaviour is good, and that bullying is rare. They are confident that should it happen, then staff would deal with it quickly. Pupils are proud of the contributions that they make to help improve the school. As members of committees, they help to organise fundraising events to support local charities. Pupils enjoy the wider opportunities that leaders provide. These include performing with the school band and working with a local artist. Pupils develop their confidence, resilience, and perseverance further through activities, such as horse riding and learning outdoors.
