Welcome to Mapplewell Primary School, a place that I am very proud to lead as Headteacher. Our school is a happy, vibrant school where pupils are provided with opportunities to develop the skills and knowledge they require to become life long learners and leave us ready for their next stage in education.

I believe that by providing our pupils with a motivating, happy and safe place to be they will achieve to their highest ability and that by providing an engaging curriculum we can foster a passion for learning that will inspire high aspirations for all. I make no excuses for having high expectations of both our staff and pupils and encourage a growth mindset in all. To promote self-belief and inspire others to achieve I share lots of my favourite motivational quotes with our staff and pupils on a regular basis. These are a focal point around school and provide stimulus for discussion to take place. I have arranged some below for you to discuss with your families and friends.

The theme of believing in yourself and having high aspirations runs through our website where we have tried to capture a small part of our school and share it with you so that you can enjoy the different things that we do together. I hope you enjoy browsing through our pages and that you get a flavour for the opportunities we provide and the ethos of our school.

A message from Mr.Garrood

I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to continue Mrs.Padfield’s hard work for the start of the academic year. I have loved every second of working for Mapplewell and am excited to take on the role of Acting Headteacher. During that time I hope to continue to develop pupil’s love of learning for all subjects, and continue to build a rich and varied curriculum with wide ranging opportunities, including further building links with the wonderful Mapplewell community. I feel very privileged to have an opportunity to lead this incredible team of staff, who I know will endeavour to continue to improve Mapplewell Primary School to further benefit our pupils and families.
