OFSTED visited us on Thursday 27th March and Friday 28th
March 2014. The inspection stated: We Are A Good School
On behalf of everyone at Middlefield Community Primary we welcome your interest in our school.
We aim to provide the very best opportunity for the growth and development of everyone in our community.
The progress of every child is immensely important to us, and we hope that our work will enable them to develop to their full potential. We want our pupils to be happy and safe; to build trusting relationships and feel valued. We want them to take responsibility for and ownership of their learning.
We are fortunate in having a great team of professionals at Middlefield who all care for the children and will always do their best for them.
Middlefield is a family that eagerly welcomes new members and we hope that you will join us.
Special Educational Needs
All children are special and, in our school, we recognise that every pupil has individual needs. We aim to help and challenge all pupils so that they reach the highest level possible in their learning and social development.
We have been awarded the Inclusion Charter Mark at Advanced level.
Every Child Matters
All staff are responsible to the Head teacher for the welfare and safety of the pupils in their care.
School takes its responsibilities for Child Protection very seriously. School is in contact as necessary with other relevant agencies regarding the best interests of pupils. We co-operate closely with Education Welfare, Social Services and School Medical and Psychological services.
We have regular visits from a variety of professionals; police, fire service and anti-bullying and racism specialists to ensure that the pupils understand how to keep themselves safe.
At Middlefield we have a Quiet Place, where parents, staff and children can access a variety of therapies and relaxation techniques. Our Learning Mentors are both qualified EQ practitioners and Middlefield is the proud owner of a Liverpool Inclusion Award.
The children are encouraged to lead a healthy life with two hours of PE a week,healthy hot lunches and visits to and from experts in the field of sport and health. We also have a Healthy School Award.
Pupils from year 6 make a positive contribution through their work as ‘buddies’ and‘paired readers’ with the younger children.
We aim to provide a challenging and well supported environment where all pupils can achieve and enjoy their education.
Home School Links
At Middlefield we aim to keep our parents fully informed about school activities and the progress of their children. We send a regular newsletter home and invite parents to a number of events, including regular coffee mornings, Thursday night ‘drop in’ (parent or carer / teacher informal chats), formal open afternoons and the celebration of achievement at regular class assemblies.
The Head teacher is available most mornings at the front door and an appointment can always be made for a longer more private chat about any issues that are troubling parents / carers / children.
Please see link above – School Development Plan

‘The most vulnerable pupils often receive exceptional support to raise their self-esteem and ensure their personal and emotional well-being’
‘Pupils enjoy school because of the security it offers and the challenge found in lessons’
We have a Liverpool Inclusion award & a Healthy Schools Award
