We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Latest updates from our school

Team Equality Speeches

Team Equality have been working hard making decisions about the Whigby project in English recently. Everyone had to make a careful decision about whether a bypass should be built in a small village. After that, the children wrote some powerful speeches using fantastic vocabulary to persuade others to support their viewpoints. Today the children spoke up about their beliefs in the outdoor classroom. Well done team!  DSCF0622

Team Courage Royal Family Tree

As part of our Royal Wedding Celebrations last Friday, Team Courage learned about our Royal Family by making our own Royal Family tree outside.  They loved working outside in the sunshine as you can see from these pictures.  Can you spot who are our very own King and Queen?

Well done to our pupils for winning the Mathematics Star of the fortnight award. They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in Mathematics. A double headteacher’s award was also presented today to Logan, who has been terrific in and out of school this week and Preston, who has been improving our locality by litter picking on the way to school- doing the right thing because it is the right thing to do.  We are so proud of you.

Also, many thanks to Simon from Frost’s Hallmark in Heanor for supplying us with the balloons to help to make our day a bit more special.

Trailblazers Y5/6 - mini-beast mayhem

We made mini-beast sculptures and music and dance mini-beast representations. Children used tools safely and independently and showed great levels of confidence when undertaking their performances.

Trailblazers Y3/4 - mini-beasts magic

A lovely morning in the wood today.

We started with a game of hide and seek before undertaking a bug hunt.

Some children then made mini-beast sculptures, while others composed music to match a selected bug...the rest of us then had to guess which bug went with which composition!

Trailblazers Y5 - the final session

We reflected on our personal development and highlights since September and chose our own top Trailblazer; it was lovely hearing the children speaking about their peers with such admiration and pride. 

After this, we made sculptures to represent our Trailblazer journey - post construction, the children chose a partner and shared their design and personal reflections.

While all this was going on, Mrs Fox knocked up a batch of delightful doughnuts with four of the children...deeeeeeeeeeelicious!

Thanks to the children, Mrs Fox and Blayze for a great run of TB!

Trailblazers Y4 - cooking, dream catchers and more

A chilly morning in the woods - coats and wooly hats were needed!

We started with a game of hide and seek before looking at some locusts and crickets kindly donated by Sheila - the children found them fascinating and this prompted us to do a bug hunt in the TB wood; we found a diverse range of little critters, but voted a centipede the top find.

After this, some children cooked, others created nature art whilst a final group made a dream catcher for our resident brown bear.
