Welcome to Totley Primary School. 

I'm Ben Paxman, and it is an absolute pleasure to be the headteacher of this wonderful school.

Totley Primary is a successful and expanding primary school situated on the border of the Peak District in South West Sheffield, with approximately 425 pupils on roll.

Our rich, broad curriculum allows children to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve the best possible outcomes, fulfil their potential and move on to the next phase of their education as successful and ambitious learners.

We are relentlessly focussed on nourishing all aspects of children's development to enable them to flourish in the world. We aim for them to feel secure and confident, so that they leave us as fully-rounded and happy citizens of the world, with lots of great memories.

All of this is built on the strong foundations of experiencing positive and caring relationships which provide them with a true sense of belonging to the school community.

In recent times, our school motto, ‘Good Friends Stick Together’ has never resonated more deeply.

We are very proud of what we do each day. Should you wish to visit the school, please contact the school office who can arrange this for you.
