Strong Sense of Community

Our school is deeply rooted in our local community. Fostering a strong sense of community among students, parents, teachers and staff. This sense of belonging positively effects our pupils development as they form meaningful connections with their peers.

Personalised Attention 

Despite our large intake of students we split our year groups into smaller class sizes in order for our children to get the personalised attention that they require from our Teachers and Teaching Assistants.

Amazing Resources and Facilities

Our vast facilities allow us to offer endless opportunities for hands-on, experiential learning. We ensure that your child has the chance to learn outside of the classroom and develop a deep appreciation for the world around them. 

OPAL - Outdoor Play and Learning

OPAL is a huge part of our school day at Pelton Primary School, and both children and staff look forward to getting outside to play, explore and develop together. The Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) Programme is focused on improving the quality of play for all children. 

In July 2023 we were awarded a Platinum OPAL Quality Award for outstanding play times. The difference it has made is phenomenal. Children are happier, more sociable between year groups and have a strong sense of resilience.
