This week we’re featuring Duckmanton Primary School for our popular weekly feature.

Derbyshire Times photographer Lindsay Martin has visited the school to take a wonderful group which will appear on page 49 of next week’s Derbyshire Times.

In its latest Ofsted report, Government inspectors hailed hard-working youngsters at the school, on West Crescent, Duckmanton.

In their report, they said: “Besides their academic progress, pupils develop well in many other ways.

“In this caring environment, they grow in confidence.

“They are clearly happy and secure at school.

“They have good attitudes to learning and behave well.

“Most have a good understanding of the need to eat healthily and take regular exercise.”

The report went on to praise the school’s teachers.

Primary Focus showcases the county’s schools and on our website you can watch videos of pupils learning, singing – and more!

Editor James Mitchinson said: “You all love Primary Focus and we want more schools to take part!”
