Welcome to Mapplewell Primary School. Unicorn and Hippogriff class parties are on Thursday 13th December 2018. Children in these classes are welcome to wear party clothes on this day.

Mapplewell Primary School

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


At Mapplewell we strive to improve and maintain high levels of attendance and punctuality.

We celebrate attendance weekly in our Celebration Assembly.  The class with the highest attendance overall, provided it is above our school target of 97%, will be presented with a cup in (KS2) and a bear in FS2 and (KS1) which they will display in their classroom for one week. Also classes who achieve 97%, and above each week will receive a certificate which is put onto our attendance chart in the school hall.


Our bears have been named Ted and Bear by the pupils.

Our Attendance Champions chart which is on display in the school hall.

Every week pupils  get a sticker on the chart which is in their classroom and at the end of the year pupils with 100%  will be invited to a tea party with the Headteacher and Attendance Officer.  Also at the end of each term pupils with 100% attendance will receive a certificate.
