About Us:

Our School vision and Ethos:

Egginton Primary School is a small rural school situated at the heart of the village community. Our main aim is to create a safe, stimulating and happy environment where children are encouraged and challenged to not just realise but exceed their potential in all areas of their academic, sporting and artistic endeavours.

The strong sense of a learning community; working together and caring about each other, is felt throughout the school and leads to a committment by all members to recognise the importance of having a positive impact on their school, local community and beyond.

We are very proud of our school. Egginton is a small school with big ambitions. Our school motto is 'To be all that I can be' and we achieve this through a partnership between the children, their parents and the staff. We deliver a forward-looking, diverse and challenging curriculum to provide children with the education, skills and attitudes they will need to succeed in the 21st century.
