This week we managed to take 6 year groups to the library to find out more about this summers Summer Reading Challenge! We ❤️ Matlock library and are so lucky to have this just down the road, it’s not too late to sign up, just pop down to the library and they’ll be happy to help!
Sports Day 2023
It was touch and go with the weather but thankfully we managed to get through all of the races! We even squeezed in Y6 vs Staff rounders, with the staff team winning 7-4(and a half) It was fantastic to see so many of you turn out to watch- thank you!!
We’re making the most of our last few days with Year 6, today we took them to Oxygen then back to school for the best water fight we’ve ever seen!
Today we bid some sad farewells- to Mrs Cormack who has been Headteacher, covering for Miss Wilton while she was off on Maternity leave, and to Mrs Horvarth who’s off to face a new challenge! There was a very emotional assembly this afternoon, followed by a guard of honour. We’d like to take the opportunity to thank them both for everything they’ve done for our school and wish them all the very best for the future 🥰
We welcomed an esteemed group of visitors this afternoon to wrap up the Mini Police programme, including the Lord Lieutenant of Derbyshire and Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner. Our Mini Police have thoroughly enjoyed the programme and won't hesitate to tell you that visits from the dog section and CSI were among their absolute favourites! They've learned so much about how diverse roles are within the police and we wouldn't be at all surprised to find some of these guys working in CSI in the future! Huge thanks Derbyshire Constabulary Matlock, Cromford, Wirksworth and Darley Dale Police SNT for the opportunity.
We’re going to be a bit ‘cringe’ (if you know you know 😉)
Todays Year 6 Leavers assembly ‘I’m an 11 Year old get me out of here !’ was incredible! We are so proud of these guys, they’re a great bunch of young people and school will feel very different without them around!
Huge well done and thank you to Mr Kernaghan for a great effort with the Year 6’s and todays performance 👏👏👏🎬
The football team signed off with a 1-0 win this afternoon. A strong first season in the school league with a 3rd place finish to celebrate. Thank you to all the parents who help us out each week with lifts. We really couldn’t do it without you!

We had a great morning in Reception and Year1 today, with lots of parents taking part in their children's Phonics Sessions. We had a super turn out and lots of positive comments.
