Arkwright Primary School

Be the best you can be


I am delighted to be the Headteacher of a school where pupils, staff, governors, parents and the wider community work together to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

At Arkwright Primary School you will find a warm, friendly and welcoming environment.

The schools values are respect, responsibility and resilience. The values are at the heart of everything we do.

Arkwright Primary School is an attachment aware school providing a safe space, a nurturing learning community.

"Derbyshire's Attachment Aware School's programme supports schools through a year-long action research process which transforms schools ethos and pedagogy. Building attachment awareness equips schools with greater knowledge, understanding and practice, which is better attuned to the needs of all children and young people.  Attachment Aware Schools value the role of relationships, and place these at the heart of good teaching and learning"
