Welcome to Mapplewell Primary School

Mapplewell Primary School

We provide excellence in learning; encourage a growth mindset
in all pupils and promote independence and motivation to succeed.

This section of our site gives detail about our academic curriculum and the extra curricula activities we offer our pupils. You can also visit individual class pages to  find out more about what your child has been learning in school.

At Mapplewell Primary School we strongly believe in developing a growth mindset in all our pupils. We are enthusiastic about embedding a learning culture in our school that promotes:

  • Morality
  • Co-operation
  • Enquiry
  • Respect
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Adaptability
  • Resilience
  • Communication

In all learning that takes place  we encourage our pupils to understand that the mistakes they make along the way are proof that they are trying and learning.

'If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don't have to be slaves of praise. They will have a life long way to build and repair their own confidence.'
