Rushton CE First School has a rich history dating back to 1772 and we value our strong local links to the community . As a small school in a rural setting we are committed to providing the best kind of learning experiences to each and every child whilst being truly entwined in our community.
We seek to provide a safe, stimulating environment, caring for the individual child and providing a happy atmosphere for learning. The qualities of confidence, tolerance and compassion are encouraged, leading the child to become a valued member of the community.
Our staff are committed to ensuring each child reaches their full potential and that they have the skills and knowledge embedded ready for the next stage of their education when they move from Rushton to middle school.
Our moto is ‘Happy Learning Together’

Nestled in the foothills of the Peak District in this quaint little village, Rushton CE First School is at the very heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands local community.
We pride ourselves on being the beating heart of the village and strive to involve ourselves in both daily life and slightly more quirky aspects of this rural life.
Depending on the time of year, children and parents alike may find themselves going on glorious spring walks, performing fabulous Christmas carol services, flying colourful bunting at the village garden party, or even amongst the local farmers doing a spot of pig racing!
Our dedicated school staff work closely with the PTA, the local community and church to make sure everyone feels included and appreciated.
