Our school is the centre of the community. We serve our community and in return the local and wider community are extremely supportive of the school.

Smiles are in abundance here at Turnditch -we are a happy school where children, staff, parents and governors work closely together to ensure that the school goes from strength to strength.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum both in the classroom and outside. We take great pride in the well rounded children who leave us at the end of their primary school life, knowing that they are well prepared for the challenges of secondary school and indeed life.

Welcome from the Headteacher

If you have concerns about the safety or well-being of ANY child, you can contact the school or visit the Derbyshire Safeguarding Website for more information about what to do.
