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.

What we’ve been up to…
Just before the new academic year began, we were successfully re-accredited with the International Schools Award for a further three years until 2021. This is a fantastic accolade for the school and recognition of how celebrating diversity and links with the wider world are fundamental to Middleton’s ethos. Our school was invited to attend the national award ceremony in London. The event took place in the Houses of Parliament and included a speech from Damian Hinds MP, the Secretary of State for Education, who extolled the virtues of schools such as Middleton for the work they do in encouraging children to have a global perspective.
Recently, our Year 4 children created a fantastic piece of Winter artwork under the guidance and expertise of an artist. We were so excited and proud to see this artwork on display, recently, at the Bramcote Lane Christmas Lights Switch on!
Last Thursday, Mrs Freely and Miss Need accompanied some of Middleton School Choir to sing at the Bramcote Lane Christmas Lights Switch on. It was a privilege to be invited, to develop links with the community and for our children to have the opportunity to show off their fantastic performing skills. We are all incredibly proud of how the children represented Middleton School. Well done Middleton!
