Our work supporting pupils in school has been recognised by a number of organisations and we are very proud of all our achievements. So what’s next? Well, for a start we want that Gold Youth Sport Trust award and the Woodland Trust Green Tree award. Watch this space!

Ofsted Good

Gulval School was recognised in May 2017 for its academic achievements, its dedication in providing a first class education for its pupils and its unrelenting support of the local community. In awarding a judgement of Good with Outstanding features Ofsted said;
‘The principal’s vision and moral purpose has created an inclusive school where expectations are high. The principal leads with a relentless ambition for excellence. He leads by example to create a haven where pupils make good progress. The staff are excellent in seeing the value in every child and making each child feel good about themselves and their achievements.’

School Games Gold Award 2016-17

In September 2017 we were awarded with the School Games Gold Award for our commitment to ensuring the very best sporting opportunities are available to pupils at Gulval School. This was a big deal and we were rightly very pleased!

Healthy Schools Award 2017-19

We were slighted to be recognised for our work supporting the health and well being of our pupils, our wider community and of course our staff; ‘Team Gulval’.

Silver Woodland Trust Award March 2017

We were rewarded again for completing more environmental projects and encouraging outdoor learning. We can’t wait to pick the apples from our school orchard and eat the delicious produce growing in our Poly Tunnel!

Stonewall School Champions

We pride ourselves on accepting all pupils, and members of our school community, without exception. Stonewall and Gulval School believe we’re stronger united in order that our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential.

Youth Sports Trust Quality Mark (Silver)

We are proud of our Thrive School status

Every child needs to feel valued, involved and appreciated. We know more now than ever before about what helps to develop healthy curious minds and happy, confident and creative children. If children have been emotionally thrown off track, either temporarily or over longer periods, Thrive helps us understand the needs being signalled by their behaviour and gives us targeted strategies and activities to help them re-engage.
