As you will know from the media, the cases of Coronavirus (Covid 19) are currently increasing in the west midlands and globally. As a school, we are continuing to talk to children about the importance of washing hands thoroughly, maintaining good hygiene and acting in a sensible manner to reduce the spreading of any germs.
For further information on how we can all play our part in reducing the spread of the virus, please read the letter in the column to the right of this article.
We are delighted to announce that places are currently available in our beautiful Nursery class set in our stunning environment, complete with our very own Forest school facility.
All families, including those in receipt of 15 and 30 hours funding, are warmly welcome to visit us and find out more about what The Valley can offer you.

We are delighted to share the exciting news that our friends at The Cheadle Academy have been undertaking something amazing for a very special cause.
On Friday 15th November, The Cheadle Academy Sixth Form Choir released their charity single 'My Oh My', which has been recorded in conjunction with Staffordshire University and the Dougie Mac Hospice.
The choir have been operating for two years and have, to date, raised an incredible £22,000 in memory of the school's wonderful former Senior Assistant Principal, Craig Beverley, who sadly passed away three years ago. We are proud that a number of former pupils from our family of schools have also been involved and, as a Trust, we fondly remember working with Craig.
The song, which is one from Craig's old band (he was a talented musician), can be purchased through:

There are numerous stories and videos of the progression of the choir over the last 18 months in the build up to the single release on the link too.
Good luck and we think that what you are doing is incredible!
Our School Council have been busy showing their caring nature to organise a special event to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support
A big 'thank you' to the parents, grandparents, carers, family members and friends who were able to support us in raising funds and awareness for this important organisation.
The boys and girls were very proud to raise a wonderful £225.46.
TMPF Music Teacher, Mr Prescott, is delighted to invite all members and friends of the school family to join the new season of the Cheadle Community Choir, which starts again on Thursday October 3rd, 4.30-5.30pm, in its new home of our sister school, Bishop Rawle C.E. (A) Primary.

Around 100 children from each of the five schools in The Moorlands Primary Federation joined together to sing and play in the first TMPF Music Concert.
Our young musicians joined performers from each of our TMPF sister schools to wow the large audience with their musical talents. Some of the children have been playing for a few years and some for a few months - each showing their lovely musical skills.
Each of the five sister schools within TMPF were delighted to join friends from Cheadle Primary School and participate in a basketball event staged by The Cheadle Academy (TCA).
Four boys and four girls took part in the celebration of sport, which began with a skills session and concluded with an exciting tournament.
Throughout the morning, every child had a chance to develop their understanding of the game and play competitively against one another. It was a great opportunity to make friends and try a new sport… whilst maybe beginning a journey towards the NBA!
The closely-fought event was eventually won by our TMPF friends at St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary. Congratulations to all who took part and to Mrs Evans and the wonderful Sports Leaders from TCA who led the event and doubled up as coaches.
