Quality education in a happy, caring, secure and welcoming environment within a Christian framework.
  • Sir John Offley CE (VC) Primary School has served the village of Madeley and the surrounding areas since the late 1600s.
  • Our three school buildings, which vary in age from the original school building to one built in the seventies, are set in beautiful grounds (with a very large playing field and orchard) which border onto Izaak Walton way.
  • The school is a Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary School and has close links with All Saints Church in Madeley.

Our Aims

Within a Christian framework which is both challenging and caring the school aims to:

  • Value all children and individuals and help them to play their part in the school and wider community, showing respect and consideration for others.
  • Set the highest standards in all aspects of school life.
  • Expect and encourage children to take personal responsibility for their own contribution to the learning process and to respect their learning environment
  • Provide teaching and learning of the highest quality in order that children will reach their full potential through a broad and balanced curriculum.
  • Promote children's spiritual , moral, cultural and social development.
  • Foster a supportive partnership between home, school, church and the wider community in order to enrich the lives of all.

We provide all these within a safer, secure and effective environment.

Extra Curricular Activities

We try to encourage children's personal talents and interests. We offer many activities to extend and build upon what the children learn in the classroom. Teaching staff gives up their free time to run clubs during the lunch hour and after school.


We organise opportunities for children to learn to play a range of musical instruments. At present these include the violin, ‘cello, clarinet, flute, recorder, piano and guitar. These lessons are subsidised by the school, but there is a cost to parents.

Sport and Sporting Aims

We am to provide a wide range of sporting activities within school, giving children the expenses they need to make informed choices in the future.

All full time children are given the opportunity to swim for at least 10 weeks every year.

We hold regular inter school matches in football, netball, cricket and rounders. We also taken part in swimming galas and chess tournaments.

Each summer we hold a sports day, to which parents are invited, which focuses on athletic events are is linked to our house system.

In addition to this the older children may gain experience in a further range of sports including: Archery, Bouldering, Canoeing, Climbing. Caving and Skiing at one of the county's outdoor education centres.

Educational Trip, Visits and Visitors to School

School trips are organised places. These trips support topic work covered by the children in class.

Older children have the opportunity to go on residential visits with their teachers. This may be camping, in dormitories or in chalets. Recently we have taken Year 6 pupils to Standon Bowers Briston and Stratford.

We also lave travelling theatre and orchestral groups in school to perform for the children (many of these events are paid for by the PTFA).

As a church school we visit All Saints' in Madeley for our Harvest Festival, Christmas Service and Easter Services. We also use the church as an educational resource across the curriculum. The vicar of All Saints' Church visits our school regularly to lead assemblies or acts of worship.

We welcome many other visitors to our school. The Police, Ambulance and Fire Services and Newcastle-under-Lyme Environmental Health Officer talk to the children about their roles, including such topics as: stranger danger, road safety, firework safety, the dangers of electricity and the danger of the local railway. For year 6 only, drugs, alcohol, smoking and the ‘save a life' scheme run by the curriculum.


Pupil Responsibilities

Older pupils are expected to set good examples for the younger children and opportunities for the development of these relationships are encouraged. Year 6 pupils are given of responsibility, which may include being a prefect, house captain or head boy or girl.

We also have a school Council to give all children in the school life. Two representatives from year 2-6 meet on a fortnightly basis and form the council. At its meetings, the council tackles any individual class discussions or circle time and appropriate action is taken, for example raising money to add to playtime equipment.

The school Council also has an anti-bullying pack which children are encouraged to read. A ‘red box' is situated outside the head teacher's office into which children can post suggestions for improvements to particular difficulties they may be having. This is treated in a confidential manner and the School Council works to address any issues that may arise.
