About our School
Church Broughton Primary School is a Church of England controlled school, situated near the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border. It is in a beautiful, rural location and along with the Church of St Michael and All Angels, is a central part of the village of Church Broughton.
We are proud to be a Church School and our close links with the Church Community strengthen and enrich our Christian Ethos, which lies at the heart of everything we do. Our children come to us from Church Broughton itself and also from a range of surrounding villages. The majority of children transfer to John Port School in Etwall at the age of eleven. We are funded by the Derbyshire Local Authority and work closely with the LA to implement improvements.
The school was built in 1974 and is of a semi open-plan design. There are four classrooms/teaching areas, a library, a community room/staff room, offices and a hall. The hall serves as a place for Collective Worship, as a gymnasium and as a dining room. School meals are cooked on the premises.
Our school Christian Vision is ‘Care, Believe, Succeed’. We provide children with a happy, safe and stimulating environment in which to learn and flourish. We actively encourage children to take responsibility for themselves and become increasingly independent. Our high expectations of behaviour, along with the many opportunities to celebrate success, make for a school in which all stakeholders are proud to be part of.
We actively promote inclusion of those with special educational needs and/or disabilities. A dropped curb area in the main car park, facilitates smooth wheelchair access to footpaths around school. These, in turn, provide access to the playground areas and school playing fields. Playground and field access can also be gained through wide pedestrian gates. The offices have been refitted with wide access doorways. The school site has a disabled toilet and washing facilities.
We are very proud of our outdoor space. We have a large playground and a field. We have a fantastic Wildlife Garden, providing children with a valuable space for outdoor learning. The children enjoy a range of activities when outdoors, with a large climbing tower, outdoor gym, trim trail, tire park and traverse wall available for all-year round play.
The school was inspected by Ofsted in October 2019. This inspection graded our school as ‘Continuing to be ‘Good’ in all areas’. Read the full report here
We work alongside Heath Fields Primary School in Hatton as part of the Dove Valley Federation. This collaboration strives to enhance and enrich the learning experiences in both schools. Mr Mark Whyman is the Executive Head working across both schools.
Pupils understand how the school helps everyone to behave well.
