VALE Junior School’s head teacher is driving positive change, its latest validation report has said.

It follows the announcement that Gary Hind will be taking on the running of Vale Infants in a merger of the two schools.

‘This has inevitably meant changes, including the raising of expectations about teaching and its impact on pupils’ learning,’ the report said.

‘Morale is good and staff are rising to new challenges and opportunities with enthusiasm.

‘Senior and middle leaders are developing their roles and increasing the use of data to support their growing involvement in monitoring activities.’

Yes tell us what we want to hear, i cant see it being good reducing staffing levels, the ex head at the vale infants school new all her pupils by name and met them daily i cant see this happening any more. the states are reducing costs in the wrong areas try reducing some of the deputies which are a waiste of time. the education have let pearents and pupils down at the vale infants school

I think it is a good thing. The majority of primary schools on the islands have now merged, and I see this as a sensible move helping to save money.

Mrs Bynam was at St Martins school when I was there as a child and she was a fantastic teacher and I'm sure she was also a fantastic headteacher too. I wish her well in retirement, and hope that the new headteacher of the joint school is just as successful.

Not wishing to completely burst the bubble of parents reading how wonderful this head is but it says in the validation report, which as a concerned parent I went online to read the school is merely proficient. Proficient. . . That means ok, just satisfactory. This is hardly a glowing report.
