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"


Welcome to Arkwright Primary School

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.

Whilst encouraging and supporting children to be 'the best they can be' we are committed to achieving the highest standards of teaching and learning, providing challenge and support, creating an environment that values children as individuals and using encouragement and praise.

We work collaboratively with other schools in the area. We belong to the 'Bolsover Excellence Schools Trust'. Collaboration with others enables us to continually celebrate, evaluate and improve our provision to ultimately improve outcomes for the children.

If you wish to know more about the school please do not hesitate to contact us.
