Middleton is a UNICEF Rights Respecting School

Awards-UnicefThe UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.

At Middleton Primary School, we are an Initial Teacher Training School and aim to provide the highest possible standards of learning for all children, whilst encouraging them to become responsible and caring individuals who show respect for everyone.


We provide as many varied opportunities as possible to ensure each child reaches their true potential and gains full and equal access to a challenging and creative curriculum.

Developing citizenship, environmental awareness and a healthy lifestyle are central to our core purpose. Our aim is for all children to feel safe, happy and healthy within our learning environment. We promote positive behaviour and attitudes that allow us to understand our World and help to protect our future.  We strive to develop kindness, fairness and understanding at school and in the wider community. We believe that this is achieved through working as a team and in partnership with parents and the local community.
