There are many ways in which you can be involved in your child’s school life and to support them as they progress. We, in turn, support you to do just that.

A positive connection

Good communication between school and home is essential. We keep you informed throughout your child’s time at school and are always here to talk. Plus, our PTFA meetings help us learn more about your ideas and perspectives.

Helpful resources

We have put a great deal of thought and effort into providing the resources and services needed to make things easier for you as a parent/carer – from simple software that supports home learning to offering Breakfast and After School clubs.

Sharing a vision

You can rest assured that your child’s future is in good hands at Manadon. Like you, we want the best for your child – an education that empowers them to succeed in a safe, encouraging and nurturing school community.

Charities & giving

We encourage active participation in the wider world and the development of compassionate citizenship. So we’re proud to play our part in offering a helping hand to support a variety of charities and good causes.

What families say about Manadon Vale

"Having been a governor at Manadon Vale for nearly 10 years, I love seeing each new year group move through the school gaining confidence and enthusiasm for learning. I also enjoy being part of a great team of committed staff."

Sarah Tawse

"Come and visit the school for yourself, join one of the tours and have a look around. It won’t take you long to realise why it’s such a great place for children to ‘be the best that they can be’."

Tom Lavis
Chair of Governors & Parent

"Manadon Vale's ethos was exactly what we were looking for in a school, as soon as we looked around and met the staff we knew our daughter would feel happy and safe from day one."

Lisa Hayward
Parent Governor

"The family atmosphere, with happy children and adults. There is a true sense of belonging to something that is very special. We have the chance to grow as individuals and within teams and support each other along the way."

Staff Member

"Over the 9 years my children have been at Manadon Vale they have been inspired and challenged on a daily basis. Their confidence in day to day lessons as well as after trips and experiences have allowed them to flourish. The staff always go and above beyond."

Lisa Hayward
Parent Governor

"Manadon Vale was a positive and caring school where I felt that my sons would thrive and grow. They are now loving secondary school thanks to the great foundation that Manadon Vale gave them."
