School should be a positive place for everyone – not only the pupils but the staff too. We provide the right training, management and support to help our valued teaching teams to do what they do best.

Celebrating unique strengths

Each member of our team has a particular set of skills, interests and talents. We encourage these to be utilised for the benefit of our pupils, for example through extracurricular activities and clubs.

A culture of collaboration

Our staff and departments work constructively together to develop and deliver Manadon Vale’s curriculum and to help our school operate as one harmonious whole. This cooperative spirit is essential to our success.

Support and resources

It’s vital that every member of our staff is given the backing they need to perform at their best. We make sure that happens through regular training, supportive management and providing effective teaching resources.

Shared vision and values

Our staff are guided by the Manadon Vale values and our overall vision to take every opportunity to be the best that we can be. These ideas are passed down to our pupils and help bond us all as one positive school community.
