Golden Valley Primary School

Learning for Lifelong Success


Welcome to Golden Valley Primary School’s website!


I hope you find the information contained here useful. The website is updated frequently with latest news and information, calendar dates, copies of all letters sent home as well as a gallery of children’s displays, work and events. 


Golden Valley is a large primary school in Nailsea with around 420 pupils arranged in 14 classes. There is a purposeful, calm atmosphere in the school where children are expected to work hard, learn new skills and knowledge and behave well. The children are supported by a hard-working and experienced team of teachers, teaching and learning assistants and other members of the support team. The whole staff share a responsibility of raising standards and keeping self-esteem high, but also in making life at school exciting, fun and enjoyable - we all know that happy children make the best learners!


Our pupils achieve outstanding results and we are very proud of their achievements in all areas. We consider the well-being of our whole school community to be paramount and this is something that is clearly seen and frequently commented on by visitors to our school. Although the website is comprehensive and contains lots of information, there is nothing better than seeing the school working from first-hand. If you are considering sending your child here, I encourage you to make an appointment to visit during school hours to sample the positive, hard-working atmosphere and to see for yourself why Golden Valley is a really good choice for your child.


It is a real privilege to be Headteacher of this great school and I am proud of all the people who contribute in some way to providing high quality education and opportunities for our children. Children leave Golden Valley having achieved their very best and look back with really positive and happy memories of the people, events and their time at the school. It is a privilege to share their childhood and serve our local community.
