Arkwright Primary School





At Arkwright Primary School we have a positive climate for learning and teaching to take place .Through our positive climate we aim to:

  • Provide learning opportunities to which pupils respond with enthusiasm and commitment.
  • Promote learning through lessons delivered by committed teachers who provide experiences which cater for the needs of all pupils.
  • Deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that is enriched with a range of experiences within and beyond the school environment.
  • Develop and equip children with the skills and knowledge needed to be self motivated and independent learners. Ready for the next stage of their education.


Schools are expected within their curriculum and day to day life to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

At Arkwright Primary school these values are taught through our broad and balanced curriculum and are supported through our own values of respect, resilience and responsibility.


Mutual Respect

Our school is a small, friendly school underpinned by the value of respect. The school participates in themed weeks such as 'anti bullying week to reinforce this value. The consistent application of the behaviour policy promotes respect.  As part of the school sports partnership the school participates in sporting events with other school. The children are well behaved and understand how to behave in a sportsman like way.

 Tolerance of those Different Faiths and Beliefs

The school follows the agreed Derbyshire Religious Education syllabus which ensures that children learn about all religions and faiths. Assemblies and themed days contribute to the knowledge of special occasions and events around the world. Resources used reflect our multi cultural society.
