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…
Well done to all of our cross country runners who competed in a 1.5km race at Wollaton Park this week. Despite the muddy and wet conditions, the children performed excellently! Our boys’ team came in first place and all left with a gold medal! Huge congratulations go to Oliver Jakubiak who finished first overall and to George Sinski who finished second. What a fantastic achievement!
Our annual Middleton’s Talent Show took place on the last day of the last term of 2018.
The show is open to all the children and is designed to showcase all type of talents.
It may be that the children attend dance classes out of school, learn to play an instrument in their own time, just enjoy singing in the shower or even like to tell “Knock Knock” jokes.
This special event gives these children the opportunity to bring their talents into school and present them to the rest of their fellow pupils.
The 2018 show was full of talented pupils who showcased acrobatics, magic tricks, football skills, musical prowess.
Just before the new academic year began, we were successfully re-accredited with the International Schools Award for a further three years until 2021. This is a fantastic accolade for the school and recognition of how celebrating diversity and links with the wider world are fundamental to Middleton’s ethos. Our school was invited to attend the national award ceremony in London. The event took place in the Houses of Parliament and included a speech from Damian Hinds MP, the Secretary of State for Education, who extolled the virtues of schools such as Middleton for the work they do in encouraging children to have a global perspective.
