Looking after your child

At Derby High Primary we offer a happy, secure family based setting where, although we do set high standards and hold traditional values, our overall aim is to instil a love of learning in all our pupils which will stand them in good stead for their secondary education and beyond.

Every child is nurtured in a caring and close environment by experienced, dedicated staff.  Children are encouraged and given every opportunity to develop their social skills and to build upon their levels of confidence and self-esteem.

Our Senior pupils make regular visits to the Primary School to work with and read to the children and dedicated Primary Sixth Form Prefects work closely with the Head of Primary to support and enhance the work of the staff.

We understand the importance of a close and effective relationship between home and school. We are able to offer plenty of formal and informal occasions for parents and staff to exchange views on academic and social development.

We all help new children and the teachers are helpful and kind.
