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.

Discovery Drumming Delight

Take a look at team Discovery's practice session this afternoon. It's hard to believe this is only their second session with Derbyshire Music Partnership.  WARNING-Ear defenders advisable! 



Team Courage BIG Read

Thank you to all the parents of children in Team Courage for supporting their children in this morning's Big Read. It was lovely to see the children engrossed in their books and the support and encouragement from mums, dads and grandparents. 

We look forward to seeing you again next week.


Achievement Assembly Winners

Well done to our achievement award winners today for their effort, hard work and progress in Mathematics over the past week. Well done also to Logan and Lewis for all their effort and enthusiasm in writing sessions this week. For this they received the Headteacher's Award.


Courage TB - chilly toes

A lovely, crisp morn in the woods that we shared with a beautiful cock-pheasant - he was pecking away at the leftovers from yesterday's Mystery Trail! 

We started with an H and S recap, before exploring the wood to find different things linked to words such as 'interesting' and 'crooked' - the children had to collaborate to agree on finds and be organised to display them appropriately.

We then split up, with some cooking, others playing team-games, a few reading stories and making hedge-hog shelters and a final bunch learning about some TB tools.

Endeavour - WW1 trenches

And the WWI trenches are finished! Don't they look amazing?! 

The children used many DT and maths skills in there completion, as well as YOU22 qualities such as Organised, Collaborative, Precise and Creative.

Well done to all and thanks to parents for the shoe-boxes.

Trailblazers Y5 - bloomin' freezing!

As it was so cold, we started with a couple of warming team building games that focused on communication, organisation and collaboration - it was wonderful seeing how the children developed their approaches as their experience of the games grew. 

We then did the blindfold trail (thanks to parents for help here) which the children found 'gross' - in a good way!

Some then carried on with instruments, made scarecrows, honed fire skills or developed a play! Great skills all round in challenging conditions!

Trailblazers Y6 - a lovely mix

We started with a version of hide and seek (which the children found frustrating due to having to work collaboratively when seeking!) and the blindfold trail which they set up and ran themselves - they loved this and really enjoyed trying to freak each other out with their grousome tales (thanks to parents for supporting children with prep for this).

After this, we had children making fires, scarecrows, instruments and a table-sports-game, with a final few writing a play and then performing it to the rest of the group. 

There was a real sense of purpose and determination in the wood today, with all children focused and engaged in their own learning.

Trailblazers Y5/6 - focused and collaborative

Quality session this week...with bundles of focus and collaboration.

Group 1 were focusing on the book 'The Bear Snores On', constructing a den using ropes, tarps and self-made tent-pegs.

Group two were continuing work on musical instruments, with a break-away group choosing to make a shelter. 

Group 3 focused on the book 'The Lonely Scarecrow', and began learning the skills needed to make their own scarecrow.

Group 4 followed a nurture approach, exploring things around the woodland, discussing emotions and creating things to support mindfulness.
