Curbar Primary School has 69 pupils on roll, aged five to eleven, including nine full-time children in the Reception year. There are three permanent teachers and the head teacher also has a teaching commitment. The school is smaller than many schools and is an integral part of the community of the three villages (Curbar, Calver and Froggat), acting as a unifying influence. The majority of pupils are of white British heritage with a small number of mixed and other races and some with English as an additional language.
The levels of knowledge and understanding of children when they arrive at school vary from year to year. There are few pupils entitled to free school meals. The proportion of children identified with special needs is less than average and we strive to provide an inclusive, relaxed and friendly environment for all children to learn and feel valued.
The number of pupils joining and leaving the school during the year is broadly average. Curbar Primary School has a very low absence rate for both pupils and staff.
