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

Year 3/4 DCLFC Football Tournament

This week our year 3/4 girl’s football team attended an all day competition held at the Power League Soccer Dome in Derby.

The tournament was hosted by the Derby County Ladies Football Club and consisted of 16 teams from across Derbyshire. The matches were played six-a-side and for 10 minutes per game.

Our team played some outstanding football scoring a staggering 27 goals and only conceding 3 over all of their 7 games. This meant our team finished the highest goal scorers in the entire tournament and 2nd place overall.


Huge congratulations to our team, especially the  three children who made their Kilburn Sporting debuts.

Also a huge thank you to the Amber Valley Sports Partnership, who kindly transported us to and from the event in their new mini bus!

Trailblazers Y5/6 - Woodland games

A bit of a different session due to groups being at Bikeability and Serenity; in the woods, some children undertook shelter building and nature treasure hunting, whilst others played a giant board game and composed music.

At the end of the session, we played some group games including 'Hide The Lennon' - we hid him so well in took the class 10 mins to find him (he's under the fire bowl in the photo).

Trailblazers Y3/4 - cartography

Resilience are mid way through making their own maps of the school site; they have been thinking about scale to help them accurately plot features; they have also been using an orienteering key to help them colour their maps to indicate types of vegetation and topography.

Over the next two sessions, they will mark out a treasure trail for another team to follow, which will hopefully lead them to a pot of gold!

Don't forget to bring in your treasure over the next two term-time weeks.

Achievement Award Winners

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. Also, a big congratulations to Millie who has worked incredibly hard with her Aboriginal-style dot painting, using her creative skills painstakingly to produce outstanding work. For this you won the Headteacher's Special Award.


Trailblazers Y5 - nature treasure hunt and big board games

Great fun at TB yesterday!

One group made a life-size snakes and ladders game complete with embarrassing challenges, whilst another group undertook a nature treasure hunt - we found some amazing things including a tiny jawbone and two little teeth; we think they may have been from a hedgehog - poor little fella.

Bikeability on a beautiful day!

The sun shone on Y5 today as they continued to impress on their L2 Bikeability training.

As you can see, everyone was listening well and working hard, learning the rules of the road.

Keep it up and safe cycling!


Lower School Trip to Derby Museum.

Lower School children have thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Derby Museum today.  They have been bringing Joseph Wright's art to life, met a Roman citizen, come face to face with a real Egyptian Mummy and much more!  Have a look at the video and photographs below and leave a comment to tell us what your favourite part of the day was!

Y5 have a very exciting and active week coming up next week (12th-16th March). Bikeability will be a great opportunity for the children to develop their cycling skills every day to gain their next award! 

Please make sure that children have their bike, helmet and a coat. They may also bring gloves. School will provide a bike to those who have already asked to do so on the reply slips. 

When your child arrives to school, they must walk up the school path and lean their bike against wall by the garage.

Thanks for your support,

Miss Jennings
