Indoor Facilities

Hall and Stage

IMG_2485

We have an exceptionally large hall which is used for P.E. drama and music; it is also used at mealtimes, when all of the children sit down together to eat a freshly cooked hot meal. This helps the children by developing the social side of eating. There is a full stage which is used all year round for concerts, plays, Christmas performance and class drama activities.

Library

Central to the school is a well-equipped reference and story library which is popular with children from all classes.

ICT

At Trent Vale we are committed to the use of ICT to enhance our teaching and the children’s learning.

We have a newly resourced special computer room which includes 15 PC’s and 15 iPads for both the direct teaching of ICT and to support all the other areas of the curriculum.Each classroom is equipped with an interactive whiteboard, a PC, sound system and a digital camera to continually support the teaching and learning of all areas of the curriculum. In addition the children have access to a wide variety of ICT equipment including digital video cameras, sound recorders, programmable toys, metal detectors and walkie talkies to support every aspect of their learning. The iPads are also regularly used within the classroom environment to support the children’s learning. All of our computers are linked to a network so children can access their work from any computer in the school.
