Writer of the Month - Isabelle Y5 'As he trudged up the stairs, his shadow reflected against the yellow wall. He opened his bedroom door and didn't manage to get to his bed; he was so tired, he simply flopped to the floor.'

"Welcome to Herbert Strutt Primary School, where we care, challenge, achieve and open minds.

At Herbert Strutt Primary School, you will be sure to find team-spirit and a warm welcome from the staff, children, parents and governors. 

We pride ourselves in supporting and challenging every child to be the very best that they can be: as learners; as friends; and as part of the community that they are growing up in.

We work in partnership with the children through the School Council and with the parents, through our “Parent Hub”, to ensure the best outcomes for everyone and to involve families in the development of policies and practice.

There is a strong sense of belonging at our school. Everyone knows that they are an important part of our success and are proud to belong to Herbert Strutt Primary; as you will be, when you join us."

Best Wishes

Sarah Core, Headteacher
