Who are we - a school in the heart of Belper

Long Row Primary and Nursery school – Inspire, Respect, Belong


Our belief is that all children have the right to a stimulating learning environment where they are motivated to learn through the provision of a varied and exciting curriculum.  We promote excellent standards of behaviour, have high expectations and are committed to high standards of achievement for all our pupils.


Who are we? We are a school in the heart of Belper - a community built around the Derwent Mills - a world heritage site. 


At Long Row we:

  • Provide a safe learning environment which promotes creativity and a curiosity of the wider world.
  • Encourage children to be confident, independent lifelong learners.
  • Encourage children to have a positive view of their own self-worth, enabling them to feel secure and valued as individuals within the school community.
  • Provide an inspiring, challenging environment for all children so that they can become highly motivated learners.
    • Develop an ethos of support, challenge and encouragement to succeed.
    • Develop the whole child, nurturing and extending their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding.
    • Provide equal opportunities for all children.
    • Teach children a sense of responsibility showing respect for others and the environment.
