Our School Vision

At Manadon Vale Primary School, we are a community of active learners.

We will be challenged and inspired on our journey to becoming responsible global citizens of the future.

We take every opportunity to be the best that we can be.


Our Aims:

  1. We are each part of a team, collaborating to achieve our best.
  2. We will be resilient, learning from our mistakes and life’s challenges, never giving up and seeing things through.
  3. We will encourage our natural curiosity, finding out about ourselves and exploring the world around us.
  4. We will understand how to keep our bodies and minds happy, healthy and safe.
  5. We will each reflect on our learning and take pride in all we do


We are proud to be a founding member of the Connect Academy Trust. Please click below to see the overarching values of the Connect Academy Trust. 

End of Year Results Summer 2018


Good attendance at school is vital for children to achieve their full educational potential. The Connect Academy Trust aims are:

  • To maintain at least good (above 96%) attendance,
  • To raise within the community the importance of good attendance,
  • To support the development of a consistent approach to managing attendance,
  • To exceed our attendance targets.


The Connect Academy Trust believes that:

  • It is every child’s right to an education
  • Good attendance is related to academic achievement and well being
  • Good attendance forms patterns for later life, so enabling pupils to become responsible citizens, and to achieve economic stability
  • Parents have direct legal responsibility for ensuring their child’s good attendance and punctuality
  • Pupils who are late miss vital learning, and often this affects the whole day
  • Decision making about the implementation of the policy is within the Headteacher’s sole jurisdiction


Our Attendance Expectations are as follows:

Excellent Attendance

98% or above

Good Attendance

96% to 97%

‘Yellow’ Attendance

93% to 95%

‘Amber’ Attendance

90% to 92%

‘Red’ Attendance

Below 90%


Please find below the Connect Academy Trust's Attendance Policy and the Attendance Ladder which shows the impact of absence on the number of days in school.   

Sports Funding

The information above is reflective of how Manadon Vale Primary school will spend the Primary PE and Sport Premium awarded in the academic year 2018-2019. The key areas that we have identified are based on the following vision and objective set by the Government; Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium which state:

“All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”


Their objective is: “To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.”


We have used the key indicators set by the Government to inform our decisions on how to spend the funding and to help us to assess the impact on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.

Our objectives are:

  1. To increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, promoting healthy, active lifestyles and supporting the whole school drive for healthy minds and bodies
  2. To raise the profile of PE and sport across the school and develop a love of physical activity
  3. To increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. To broaden the experience of children in a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. To increase participation in competitive sport


The Government also specify what information is required to be published by each school in receipt of the Primary PE and Sport Premium. You must include

  • How much PE and sport premium funding you received for this academic year
  • A full breakdown of how you’ve spent or will spend the funding this year
  • The effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
  • How you will make sure these improvements are sustainable

Please find above our previous action plan and the impact in 2017-2018 and our current plan for 2018-2019 on how we will use the Primary Sports Premium funding:
