Welcome to our school


Middleton Parish Church School aims to fulfil everyone’s potential in a friendly, caring, Christian Environment where all are valued.


We are a Church of England Primary school that sits in the heart of Middleton. We have high expectations of our children and have a dedicated staff team who are committed to providing an exciting environment in which they can learn. Gospel values, as exemplified in the life of Jesus, are used to create an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning; these are summarised in our school’s vision statement of ‘Excellence, Truth & Grace’. We are an inclusive community that works hard and, is invested in, building strong community links for the benefit of all.

Our aim is that everything that we do in school is fair, non-discriminatory and does not put individuals or groups of people at a disadvantage. We recognise that our children are made in the image of God possessing unique gifts and qualities and we actively look to celebrate the successes and achievements of all.


John Shelton
Head teacher

‘Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.’

Philippians 4: 8-9
