Middleton is a UNICEF Rights Respecting School
The 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.
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.
Our School Aims
- To provide an inclusive, welcoming and safe environment in which every child is valued, cared for and supported.
- To offer a broad and balanced curriculum that provides children with the best possible learning opportunities and experiences and enables them to enjoy their education and develop positive attitudes towards learning.
- To ensure that all children are able to realise their potential through high quality learning and teaching experiences that promote and value all achievement and raise self esteem.
- To inform and encourage all children to adopt a healthy lifestyle by promoting healthy eating, regular exercise and physical and mental well being.
- To promote equality, respect and understanding and to provide opportunities for children to learn about and celebrate cultural diversity.
- To develop an appreciation of the World in which we live and an awareness of our environment to encourage children to be responsible citizens of the future.
What we’ve been up to…
As we settle in for night 2 at Kingswood, we have shared our favourite moments. So far highlights include: raft building, zip wire and archery (oh and of course the food). We are looking forward to the climbing wall tomorrow. We have had lovely weather for the most part and are all happy and healthy. We will continue to send regular messages through marvellousme. We are looking forward to seeing you all Friday.
Our RRSA steering group has been busy. With UNICEF in mind, they have made a special video for the new school year.

On Tuesday 25 July, we had a whole school picnic in Wollaton Park. We played cricket, football, parachute games, skipping ropes etc. The children particularly enjoyed meeting up with older siblings and other family members. Once again this annual event was a crowd-pleaser. A real sense of community could be felt as everyone came together to sit, chat and share. A big thank you to everyone who gave their time and support.
