What the school offers its staff


Totley Primary School is a warm and welcoming place. Positive relationships abound and are absolutely central to the school’s ethos.


The school has developed an ambitious, rich and vibrant curriculum, which builds a strong understanding of key knowledge and the development of a breadth of skills.


Reading holds a fundamental place in our ethos. Starting from the Foundation Stage, children engage in daily phonics lessons, promoting fluent reading skills. Our school's culture fosters a genuine love for reading, evident in the enthusiasm our children show for it.


Children's behaviour and attitudes are a strength because caring relationships, coupled with a culture of mutual trust between school staff and pupils, have cultivated a harmonious, positive, and respectful school environment. There is an expectation of high standards from all and for all.


Children’s wider development and well-being are prioritised exceptionally well so that children grow into well-balanced and happy citizens, with robust moral values. They are champions of equalities, tolerance and respect and have a strong sense of belonging within both the local community and wider society.


Regardless of their starting points or potential barriers such as SEND or socio-economic disadvantage, children get off to a great start and make strong progress throughout their time at Totley Primary. They leave fully prepared for secondary school in every way, including having achieved high academic standards.


The school provides an exceptional standard of education for its children and the community, which has grown increasingly diverse as the school has expanded. A strong culture of growth and succession planning has secured a dynamic and highly effective leadership team, which has flourished as the school has grown.
