Welcome to the Yox Valley Partnership of Schools

Welcome from the Academy Head

Welcome to the Yox Valley Partnership website.  We are two small primary schools working closely together with the shared objective of providing the very best education and support to pupils in community focused schools.  Middleton Primary and Yoxford and Peasenhall Primary benefit from great staff, delightful children and well resourced facilities.

Our two schools became academies on 1st December 2016, which in essence means that they moved away from being Suffolk County Council maintained schools and became funded and directly accountable to the Department for Education.  Whilst little change was noticed at classroom level, it meant a significant amount of change and improvement in how the schools were managed and run.  The schools' new ‘parent’ organisation is The Consortium Multi-Academy Trust and you can find out more by looking at the Our Schools tab or visiting ‘The Consortium’ website.

Our schools have been through a period of uncertainty and change during the past few years, but we have a clear road map forward and we have been investing heavily in staff development and resources.  We have installed state of the art IT technology into our classrooms and we have redevelopment, expansion and building plans in place that will see our schools' future secured.

We promote British values and a sense of fair play through a great PE and the wider creative curriculum.  Pupils, through the efforts of the school council, actively support a number of local, national and international charities, local churches and other organisations ensuring that our pupils have a real sense of place in the world.

The school day has been extended to provide Breakfast and Afterschool Clubs.

At Yoxford we will be opening a nursery provision in Easter 2018 in a purpose-built facility and will be exploring the opportunity to improve our already excellent swimming pool to all-year-round use. 

We have an exciting period ahead of us and our passion is to provide exceptional learning and teaching for children in the locality.

Please spend some time looking around our website and if you are interested in viewing our schools we would be delighted to show you why we are so proud of them.  We truly are small schools with huge ambitions.
