A very warm welcome to St Werburgh’s Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Primary School


St Werburgh’s is a special and happy school community, where children are given the very best opportunities to learn for life, to grow together and to achieve their full potential. We are located in the village of Spondon, near Derby, on a large green site which includes woodland areas, an allotment, large school field and play grounds.

We believe that learning should be fun, that children should have a childhood enriched by the highest standard of education and that their school days should provide happy memories to last a lifetime.

Our Vision for our Children

We want every child to be the best person that they can possibly be and to know that they have a valuable place in God’s world. The whole school and church community are committed to working together towards this end, so each child can blossom academically, socially and spiritually. Our school motto: Achieve, Believe, Together, helps us to remember how we can do this:

  • By being good role models- like Jesus
  • Taking pride in ourselves and our work
  • Having high expectations
  • Being prepared to have a go
  • Being a team player.

In this way we ensure that all our pupils are happy, confident and fully prepared to enjoy life, whilst at the same time providing them with the skills needed to make their own unique contribution to God’s world.

In our St Werburgh’s family we have an amazing group of children, parents, staff and governors who make our school so special. Together we take an immense pride in leading our children through a very important journey… that of learning.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school, where you will find out lots more about us from the experts; our children!
