Welcome from the Principal/CEO


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

The Yoxford and Middleton schools became academies on 1st December 2016, which in essence means that we have moved away from being a Suffolk County Council maintained school and will become funded and directly accountable to the Department for Education. While little change will be noticed at classroom level, it will mean a significant amount of change and improvement in how the schools are managed and run. Our new ‘parent’ organisation will be The Consortium Multi-Academy Trust and you can find out more by looking at the school-to-school support tab or visiting ‘The Consortium’ website.

Our schools have been through a period of uncertainty and change during the past two years, but we have a clear road map forward and we have been investing heavily in staff development and resources for our schools. We have recently installed state of the art IT technology into our classrooms and we have redevelopment, expansion and building plan 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 ensures that our pupils have a real sense of place in the world.

We have recently extended the school day to provide Breakfast and Afterschool provisions.

At Yoxford we will be opening a nursery provision in January 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.
