We want to wish a very warm (if virtual) welcome to Alver Valley Schools to all of our new families. This page is just for you and we hope you will find it really useful! In the coming days and weeks we will post lots of useful information including links to our virtual welcome meetings, virtual visits, songs and rhymes sessions, information booklets and lots more.

This year we are launching a brand new songs and rhymes project.

You can contact the Early Years team directly by emailing: [email protected]
