Article 16 of the UNCRC makes it clear that children and young people have the right to privacy, just like adults do. This means that: they have the right to a private family life. they have the right to a private space where they can go to be alone, even if they’re in an institution.
Welcome to Middleton Primary & Nursery School
Welcome to Middleton! We are very proud of our school community, particularly the strong sense of partnership that exists between children, staff, governors and parents/carers. Our aim is to provide the highest possible standards of education for every child, whilst ensuring they stay safe, enjoy their learning and develop positive attitudes to school. We are a happy, caring school where all children are encouraged to be active, independent learners. Middleton is proud to have been granted both the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award and the International Schools Award. Together, these recognize the school’s underpinning ethos based on promoting inclusion, celebrating diversity and nurturing a caring, respectful attitude where everyone’s rights are recognised and valued.
The school was graded as ‘Good’ in its most recent Ofsted inspection, in November 2017. The report commented that: “Pupils are proud of their school. Older pupils speak eloquently about how they are supported to learn and how much they love the school… The pupils know their views will be heard in this school.” ( Please click on the blue RRSA logo to know more about our RRSA work)

What we’ve been up to…
Year 1 Thoroughly enjoyed a day of fun French activities. They all looked ” fabuleux” in their French Clothing! We loved tasting French food, painting in the style of Matisse and trying some traditional French dancing.
Year 5 put on their Macmillan Coffee Morning to raise funds for the Macmillan Cancer Nurses.
At Middleton, we endeavour to integrate the values and work relating to our Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award across the whole school. It helps develop pupils’ acceptance of difference and diversity, and provides them with a strong moral compass. Sharing the RRSA Unicef booklet with our pupils, their parents and carers at the start of the new academic year is a good way for us to share our vision.
