Welcome to

Fernvale Primary School


Fernvale Primary School is a caring community of children, parents, staff and governors. Together we continually strive to provide a happy and supportive environment in which the unique potential in every child is realised.


Our Early Years building has arrived 




“Pupils’ achievement throughout the school is good and pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their schooling. Children make good progress in the Reception class, where they benefit from a wide mix of exciting work. Pupils continue to make good progress as they move up the school. They reach above-average standards when they leave school in Year 5. Good teaching helps pupils to build on their skills year by year. Teachers provide pupils with work that is interesting, relevant and challenging."

Save money by downloading the School Gateway app

If you have a smartphone, both you and the school can save money when you download the ‘School

Gateway’ app from your app store (Android and iPhone).

*** We’re aiming to get 90% of parents using the app – please help us achieve this ***

Once you’ve downloaded the app, our texts will be delivered to you as instant app messages, saving us the cost of texting.

Any messages that you send to school using the app will be FREE of charge to you.

It’s quick and easy to do. All you need to activate the app for the first time is your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you. If you have trouble logging in, please come to the school office.
