We are a small, friendly school, with approximately 85 children on roll, in the High Peak area of Derbyshire. We pride ourselves on our commitment to providing the best possible education for our children, whatever their needs.

From here, you will be able to get a taste of what school life is like at Furness Vale Primary School by looking at the School Prospectus, Video and our Blog.

At Furness Vale Primary School we aim to provide the best quality learning experiences for all our children in a safe, secure, caring and welcoming atmosphere.

It is a place in which children are challenged to become self-confident, independent learners, making good progress to achieve​ their potential, whatever their starting-point, skills and abilities.
