Manadon Vale Primary School is a very special place, where we aim to provide a happy, caring, safe, friendly, challenging and inspirational environment. We are a large primary school full of active learners, with a family ethos where the children are at the heart of everything we do.

We believe that every child can do amazing things and it’s our job to help make this potential a reality. It is also our duty to ensure that Manadon Vale provides an outstanding education so that every child has the freedom to choose their own future. To achieve this, teamwork, communication and high expectations are essential.
