Welcome

Welcome to Hartington C of E Primary School.  Thank you for visiting our website which is constantly being up-dated to keep you informed of current events.

Our Motto is ‘Education at the Heart of the Community’, in which we fully believe, with our children taking part and leading many social events both in school and the community.

Our school is located in the rural village of Hartington in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire. We have close links with the Diocese, local primary and church schools.  We also have links  to Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Ashbourne through our sports provision, and this is where many of our pupils transfer to, at the end of Key Stage 2. Another link we are developing is with a small school in Uganda through our personal relationship with the present captain of the Ugandan Netball team  Peace Proscovia.

We regard each child as unique, with individual needs. Our enthusiastic and highly motivated team are committed to giving each child the highest standard of care, guidance and support which is delivered with the Christian Vision at its heart. We offer skilled teaching and a stimulating and creative curriculum with high expectations, including the social, moral, spiritual and cultural well being of the whole child. We aim to help children develop a sense of self worth and confidence, whilst being self critical and taking increasing responsibility for their own learning and leading them on the journey to becoming a valued member of an ever changing multicultural society.

We hope our website will help give you a flavour of the life and work of the school, and of the caring and welcoming atmosphere you will find here.

If you would like any further information or you have any questions you need answering please don’t hesitate to contact us by e-mail or telephone. Visits are always welcome.

Visits from prospective families are encouraged  and we look forward to hearing from you.
