1st March 2024 is a momentous day... Today we welcome Gig-Mill Primary and Withymoor Primary Schools into our family of schools. We have been working in partnership for some time and this has led to us formalising our work and being permanent members of the Trust. 

We look forward to you starting the next chapter of our Hales Valley journey with you

Today the Trust becomes...

'The Magnificent Seven'


A highly successful Trust Football match was held on 29th February 2024 at Woodside Primary School - all 7 schools took part. The children upheld the Trust values of showing perseverance and resilience whilst playing against other teams. The final result gave Lapal Primary the win over all - Well done to Lapal Primary football team!

Thank you to the all the adults who made the event happen and ensured the safe transporting of children.


Huge congratulations to the Woodside Primary School team who recently achieved 'Good' in their Ofsted inspection in November 2023. Team Woodside have worked endlessly to ensure the Quality of Education at Woodside Primary School meets the needs of their pupils. 

Well done #TeamWoodside


School success! In 2022-2023 Lapal Primary School was the top achieving school in Dudley for GLD at the end of Reception year - great work #TeamLapal.

In addition to this, Lutley Primary School made the most progress from their starting points with a whopping improvement of 72.7% from the start of the year to the end.

Well done both schools for their commitment to improving outcomes for children at the very start of their school journey.


In September 2023 Hales Valley Trust was designated as the East Midlands Flexible Working Ambassador Trust. We are looking forward to working with our partners in the East Midlands to spread the good work about flexible working and how it can help to retain people in the education workforce and promote a healthy work-life balance.
