Middleton Primary School
Middleton Primary School has an ethos based around old fashioned values of good manners, respect, kindness and hard work. We have very high expectations of behaviour at Middleton. Visitors often comment on the calm atmosphere and good relationships, which are so important to us.
Our 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. We track pupils progress very carefully and make sure everyone knows what are the next steps for learning. Our curriculum also covers much wider areas of learning and we offer numerous enrichment activities, such as clubs and visits. We work very hard at Middleton, but we also believe 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.
We are a musical school and our choir is one of the jewels in our crown. There are over 70 children in Choir and we 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. Our Cross Country team trains all year round and has achieved considerable success. We take part in lots of interschool sports, such as football, netball, rugby and athletics and everybody is encouraged to join in and have fun.
We are an inclusive school and we try to ensure that we know all our pupils really well. Every child matters at Middleton and we value children for all their different strengths and qualities.
