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.

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…

Young Voices Birmingham 2019

On Thursday, Mrs Freely, Mrs Need, Mrs Harne and Mrs Rick took 28 children from the Middleton School Choir to the Birmingham Resorts World Arena for Young Voices 2019. Over 6500 children joined together to create the world’s BIGGEST school choir. It was an absolutely incredible experience for adults and children alike and a privilege to have been able to be a part of something so special.
Stars including Beau Dermott ( a Britain’s Got Talent golden buzzer act), Sharlene Hector ( a singer/songwriter who has been part of Basement Jaxx) and Tony Hadley, the lead singer of Spandau Ballet also joined us. Meeting Tony Hadley was a particular highlight for the Teachers!
Mrs Freely would like to thank all of the children who took part n the concert for all their hard work over the last few months and also a huge thank you to the parents who were able to support us by coming along to the concert.
It was a night we will never forget and we cannot wait to see what next year brings!
Please check our video in our Videos page or on our YouTube Channel.

CHAMPIONS!

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!

Talent Show 2018

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.
