Sir John Offley CE VC Primary School 

Motto: ‘Everyone matters, every day counts’.

Vision: Within a warm and welcoming Christian environment: we aim to provide a happy, caring and stimulating setting where children will recognise and achieve their potential, making a positive contribution to society.

Aims: Within a Christian framework the school works to ensure that all children will leave with:  

  • Spiritual, moral, cultural and social values.
  • Skills for the future. 
  • Strong self esteem, confidence and high personal expectations.
  • Tolerance, respect and forgiveness of others.

Our mission is to provide: 

  • Teaching of the highest quality and an enjoyment of learning. 
  • A broad, balanced and challenging curriculum. 
  • The highest standards in all aspects of school life.
  • Learning partnerships between home, school, community and church. 
  • A safe and stimulating environment which encourages children to consider their own attitudes, values and beliefs.


“This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Parents can feel confident that careful procedures are in place to ensure that all staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children. Staff hope that parents and children will feel free to talk about any concerns or worries which may affect educational progress and that they will see the school as a safe place. Children will be taken seriously if they seek help from a member of staff. Parents will normally be consulted and their consent obtained before any referral is made to an agency outside the school under local "children in need" procedures. However, staff cannot guarantee to consult parents first, or to keep children's concerns confidential, if referral must be made to the appropriate agencies in order to safeguard the child's welfare".


2016 was the first year of the new key stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling. The tests assess children against a national standard. This year’s tests are the first tests to reflect the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014.

As this is the first year of the new tests the results will look different from those of previous years and cannot be compared with them directly.
