Hathersage St Michael’s Church of England (Aided) Primary School



Our school aims to provide:


  • a safe and caring, fun and happy environment;


  • high quality teaching within a broad curriculum;


  • a climate in which everyone has a commitment to do his or her best;


  • opportunities for all children to co-operate together in learning the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to reach their full potential;


  • praise and encouragement for all children;


  • a Christian example, where we respect and value both ourselves and others;


  • a cheerful and friendly atmosphere;


  • equal opportunities for every child to progress in all aspects of school life;


  • ways for children to develop personally within school and through extra curricular activities.



We want the children to:


  • be at the centre of our caring community, which is based on Christian values, and will prepare them for the future;


  • look after our school and its surrounding environment;


  • have fun.

National Curriculum

We teach a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils.  We follow the National Curriculum, which comprises -  English, mathematics and science (including health education); - design  technology, information and communication technology, art, music, history, geography and physical education.  Religious education is also taught throughout the school.


Some subjects such as Mathematics, English, R.E. and music are taught as individual subjects and others like history and geography are taught through topic work. Topics are covered in a 2-year cycle at KS1 and a 4-year cycle at KS2.  Parents are told in advance what topics their children will be covering so that they can give them maximum support.


The school has adopted the National Literacy and Numeracy strategies and found them very beneficial and stimulating.  These projects give national guidance on the teaching of these areas so as to ensure systematic progress in all parts of the subjects.

Religious Education and Assemblies

The Christian ethos of our school is fostered in daily assemblies, sometimes involving the whole school and sometimes just the class.  The vicar from Hathersage St Michael’s Church, and occasionally the minister or priest from the other churches in the village, regularly take part in these events.  There are also special services marking the major Christian festivals like Christmas and Harvest, which take place in the church, as well as a termly Church Assembly, to which all parents are invited.  Attendance at collective worship and religious education is a statutory requirement but it is possible for parents to withdraw their children.  This should be discussed with the headteacher so that alternative arrangements can be made.
