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 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…
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.
