We hope you find this website a useful introduction to our school.
Our school is in the village of Middleton in the Derbyshire Dales, close to the town of Wirksworth.
At present 97 children attend our school, housed in 4 classrooms. Adjacent to our school is the Village Hall which we access daily for assemblies, lunchtimes, P.E. and musical instrument teaching.
Our outdoor environment is a very valuable part of our school. We pride ourselves on our outdoor learning provision and use our woodland, garden of reflection, school field and allotment to teach many different skills to our children.
We provide a pleasant, caring environment in which children develop positive attitudes towards themselves, others and their learning. We hope that by the end of their primary schooling each child will have developed to their full potential both socially and academically and will have a firm foundation on which to base further learning upon. Each child is an individual and we endeavour to treat them as such. We welcome parental involvement in the children’s learning and like to work together closely as a team.
This is only a flavour of our lively, industrious school. The best way to get to know us is by arranging a visit. We look forward to meeting you and your families.
