WELCOME TO CURBAR PRIMARY SCHOOL

Welcome To Curbar Primary School

Welcome to the website of our wonderful village school.  Curbar Primary School is a small village school set in the beautiful surroundings of the Hope Valley in the Peak District National Park.  We have been a community school for nearly 140 years.  We are well supported by committed governors, parents and locals.  Our children get out and about too.  Just last term they worked with the Eastern Moors partnership on environmental projects, visited Eden Camp and worked with a local artist via a resident history group and had writing published by a local creative arts project.   Children also enjoyed visits to Chatsworth, the Butterfly House and an outdoor activity residential in Buxton. 

 

We are very proud of the education we offer our children.  In the reception group, a safe, inclusive learning environment is quickly established.  Lots of outdoor learning ensures these youngsters are developing all round skills and fun is at the centre of it all – the mud kitchen is always a favourite!  As learning progresses, the school day offers variety, stimulation and challenge for all pupils, whatever their ability.  Topics often stretch across the curriculum, helping make learning relevant and interesting.  Gardening can link to maths; history and geography recently linked to excellent year 5 & 6 report writing.  Regular assessment ensures that each child’s learning is closely monitored – with support offered where necessary by experienced staff.  We have high expectations of all children and encourage them to relish challenge too.   As a result, they make great progress.  Just look at our consistently good results on the school website.

 

The range of activities is also something of which we are proud.  Sporting talents are developed with regular competitions, lunchtime and after school clubs led by skilled coaches.  Singing as a ‘Young voices’ choir; competing in a cluster Kwik Cricket event; drumming on Curbar edge; entertaining locals at our Spring ‘May Bough’ day; raising over £300 in enterprise week; growing, cooking and eating our own food – just a few recent highlights! Follow us on Facebook for the pictures! 

 

As a small school each child is known and feels involved.  It is noticeable, especially when out and about, that the older children relish the responsibility of supporting their younger peers.  This is very often remarked upon by our hosts.  It is a delight to see these social skills develop, as our children grow.
