Headmaster’s Welcome

‘The Morley Feeling Where Anything Can Be Achieved’ 


I am delighted to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you as we embark on another exciting academic year at our beloved school nestled in the picturesque countryside of Derbyshire. With immense pride and enthusiasm, I take on the role of Headmaster, entrusted with the responsibility of nurturing and guiding our 80 exceptional young minds.

At Morley Primary School, we are not just a school; we are a family, and we embody what we call "The Morley Feeling." This feeling is built upon the pillars of Togetherness, Love, and Passion, values that permeate every aspect of our school community. We are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment where every child feels valued, respected, and encouraged to thrive.


Our curriculum is designed with the utmost care and consideration, focusing on three core pillars that form the foundation of our educational philosophy:

1. Vocabulary: We believe that a rich vocabulary is the key to unlocking a world of knowledge. We are dedicated to helping our students develop strong language skills, enabling them to express themselves articulately and understand the world around them with greater depth.

2. Local-Based Curriculum: We take pride in our rural heritage and are deeply rooted in the beautiful Derbyshire landscape. Our curriculum is thoughtfully crafted to celebrate and explore the unique history, culture, and environment of our local community, instilling a sense of belonging and appreciation for our surroundings.

3. Leaders of the Future: At Morley Primary School, we are not just educating students for today; we are preparing them to be Leaders of the Future. Our holistic approach to education empowers our children to develop critical thinking skills, emotional intelligence, and a strong moral compass, ensuring they are well-equipped to face the challenges of an ever-changing world.

As we embark on this journey together, I invite you all to be active participants in your child's education. Collaboration between parents, teachers, and students is the cornerstone of our success. Together, we can inspire a love for learning that will last a lifetime.


I am excited about the year ahead and the endless possibilities it holds. Morley Primary School is not just a place of education; it is a place where dreams take root, friendships blossom, and futures are shaped. Let us work together to nurture the potential within each child and watch them grow into the leaders of tomorrow.


Once again, a warm welcome to Morley Primary School. I look forward to a year filled with achievements, growth, and unforgettable memories.

With warm regards,



Tony Taylor – Headmaster
