Middleton Primary School

Middleton Primary School has an ethos based on traditional values of good manners, respect, kindness and hard work. They have very high expectations of behaviour and visitors often comment on the calm atmosphere and good relationships, which are so important to all at Middleton.

The curriculum aims to encourage children to develop the skills they need for later life, with a very strong focus on the basic skills of English and Mathematics, but equal attention paid to other subjects. The school tracks the progress of pupils very carefully and makes sure everyone knows what the next steps for learning are. The curriculum also covers much wider areas of learning and the school offers numerous enrichment activities, such as clubs and visits. Although everyone works very hard at Middleton, the school believes that learning should be fun. Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop skills, which will make them better learners.

Middleton is a musical school and the choir is one of the jewels in its crown. There are over 70 children in the choir and they have sung at the Royal Albert Hall and in national music festivals. Many children learn to play musical instruments with us and all children take part in yearly dramatic performances.

Sport is also a strength of the school. The cross country team trains all year round and has achieved considerable success. The children take part in lots of interschool sports, such as football, netball, rugby and athletics and everybody is encouraged to join in and have fun.

As an inclusive school, staff try to ensure that they know all pupils really well. Every child matters at Middleton and children are valued for all their different strengths and qualities.
