Executive Headteacher's Welcome

Mr Peter Johnston

Welcome to The Village Federation's website -
a great place to find out more about our wonderful schools.


This is a very exciting time as Carsington & Hopton Church of England Primary School, The Fitzherbert Church of England Primary School and Kirk Ireton Church of England Primary School work together as The Village Federation. To help share information with parents and the wider community, this website should help everyone to understand more about the way the Federation runs and to see some of the things (such as policies) that are common to all of the schools. For families who are already involved in one of the schools, the 'Meet the Governing Body' page will be of interest as this is the only change to the day-to-day experience you are used to at each of our unique and fantastic Church schools.
