Welcome To Curbar Primary School

Curbar Primary School and 623 Community Muck In Day 

A huge thank you to the army of volunteers who gave up their Saturday to help provide some late Spring cleaning to our school grounds.  If it was dirty it was cleaned.  If it was rubbish it was put in the skip.  If it was long and overgrown it was strimmed.  If it was bushy it was pruned.  If it was blocked it was cleared.  If it was damaged it was repaired.  If it was untidy it was tidied.  If it was cake it was eaten.  If it was tea it was drunk. 

This was a huge community effort typical of Curbar Primary School to make the environemnt better for our pupils.  Thank you does not quite seem enough.  But thank you anyway. 

                            

Welcome to our wonderful village school!  Curbar Primary School is a small village primary school set in the beautiful surroundings of the Hope Valley in the Peak District National Park. 

We believe our school to be fantastic and we are proud of the education we offer our children. At Curbar we aim to make the learning stimulating, challenging but most of all fun! It is our belief that by providing a curriculum that is matched to the needs of our children they will make great progress. 

We try to ensure that the children receive a broad range of opportunities to help stimulate their imagination. They will go on trips, be visited by ‘experts’ in their own fields of study, have opportunities to perform and showcase their artistic talents. We hope that every child realises their talent and potential at Curbar Primary School.

We consider ourselves very fortunate that we are a community school and have been for nearly 140 years! We are very well supported by our parents group (PTFA).  We also play an active part in the life of our village.

It is our aim to develop pupils who are independent, articulate learners who are ready for the next stage of their learning journey and for many of the challenges that life can provide.

We hope you find our website useful and packed with the information you need.

Year 6 Transition to LMS (Languages)

We received this letter  from Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards.  Congratulations to all involved!

 

Dear Mr Beahan

 

I would like to congratulate you, your staff and pupils for the very high standard that pupils in your school have achieved in mathematics in the 2016 key stage 2 assessments.

 

Your school’s results, as published on 15 December, show that 100 per cent of your pupils reached or exceeded the expected standard in mathematics at the end of key stage 2. This means that your school is in the top 2% of primary schools in England for attainment in mathematics.

 

We want to ensure that every child has the necessary fluency in mathematics to prepare them for a successful secondary education and beyond, and your school has provided this to all of your pupils.

 

Thank you for your hard work and professionalism in producing such high standards and congratulations to you and your staff for all you have achieved.

 

With best wishes.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Nick Gibb MP

 

Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP
Minister of State for School Standards
