Welcome to West Vale Primary School website

Alternative Provision

Whilst we are committed to providing care for vulnerable children and those of critical workers, there may be circumstances when we are unable to do so.  Should that occur, we will work with the Local Authority to ensure that alternative provision is available.  The Local Authority can be contacted on 01422 394101 or at school.effectiveness@calderdale.gov.uk.

 

West Vale Rainbow Display

Pupils and staff at West Vale Primary School have been spreading cheer by creating a large rainbow design in the class four window as a thank you to key workers.  Well done to all.

Home Learning Well Done

A huge thank you to all our West Vale family. Staff, children and parents have shown what an amazing group of people we are. The engagement on Seesaw has been fantastic and staff have enjoyed seeing what children have been doing at home as much as the children have enjoyed doing it. Parents have been so supportive and we have had so many lovely comments. It is unknown times and I know we are all doing our very best to respond to the different challenges that we face daily. Being supportive of each other and appreciating each other efforts, no matter how little or huge,  helps at this difficult time. Staff are working hard to support home learning and coming into school to provide care for the critical workers in our community. Parents and children are also working hard and that is evident on what we see on Seesaw and I’m sure there is much more happening too. I know we will all continue to support each other and we will update you regularly if we have any new information.

Coronavirus Information

Although we remain open for a small number of key worker and vulnerable children, not as an educational setting but as a safe space with a very skeleton staff, we would like to direct you to this advice from the Education Secretary on behalf of the Government.

 

You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response.

 

If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.
