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.

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.

What we’ve been up to…

French Trip to Edale Rise Primary School

Some of our Year 5 children enjoyed their first language trip to watch a French clown at Edale Rise Primary School . They visited the school and then experienced a French restaurant managed by a very funny man and his puppet. All the pupils had a wonderful time and loved the fussball breaktime before the play.

Swimming Gala

A huge well done to Eddie, Joseph, Walter, Oliver, Kieran, Daniel, Nerys, Megan, Grace , Soraya, Hannah and Maisie, who all competed in a swimming gala this week. The children swam fantastically well, winning many of their races and with some close second places. Overall, the team placed in third position and were delighted to come home with a bronze medal each. The children were brilliant ambassadors for the school, congratulating and cheering on their competitors.
