Headteacher Welcome

Welcome to Mapplewell Primary School. This 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 truly believe that in order for a school to be successful it must be a motivating, happy and safe place to be. 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 highly I share lots of my favourite motivational quotes with our staff and pupils on a regular basis. 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.
