Welcome to Fernvale Primary School.

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.


“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."

Read our fantastic OFSTED report:
