Welcome to our school! We are a primary school located on the boundary between Sheffield and the Peak District. We have 14 classes and approximately 420 children. Recently, we have expanded our school with a new extension building that provides exciting, state-of-the-art facilities. This includes a food tech and science laboratory, an IT suite and library, as well as new, modern and spacious classrooms.
At Totley, we believe in achieving the best possible outcomes for all our children. Our vision is for every child to fulfil their potential and become highly successful learners, leaving our school feeling confident, secure, and as fully-rounded and happy citizens of the world. We value positive and caring relationships and believe they provide children with a true sense of belonging to the school community. Our school motto, ‘Good Friends Stick Together’ has never resonated more deeply, and we also work to support the wellbeing and mental health of everyone in our community. As holders of the Mental Health in School Award, we prioritize the wellbeing of our students and staff.
We believe that learning is a journey and have developed an ambitious, vibrant curriculum that enables every child to experience success in each area of learning. We know that every lesson counts, and our teachers are experts in using engaging, immersive and effective teaching methods. We have recently collaborated with Edtech partners to develop our online curriculum offer and use Google Classroom as a platform for setting homework and remote learning.
