Totley Primary is an inclusive school with a strong, caring, pastoral structure which underpins an inspiring curriculum. This seeks to develop the potential of every child in all subjects. Staff care deeply for the children and are skilled in planning to meet their individual needs, both personally and academically. We believe that building good relationships is the key to success and the children and staff of Totley Primary School are encouraged to build strong, positive relationships, resulting in everyone feeling cared for, valued and happy. Older children are encouraged to take on responsibilities around school and be good examples for our younger children.
Our curriculum is based on developing good quality English and maths skills which can be transferred across to other subjects. High academic achievement and creative development are valued at all stages, with the classroom focus being on challenge, engagement, inspiration, motivation and fun for all.
Learning is celebrated in all its forms and children are encouraged to take risks and be independent, resilient and confident, both inside and outside of the classroom. We have a committed staff team, who support and encourage learning, including those children who may need a little extra help. Our aim is that all children leave Totley Primary believing in themselves, having the skills to support others and striving to reach their full potential as lifelong learners with smiles on their faces.
