Welcome

Welcome to Danegrove School

On behalf of myself, the staff, governors and pupils, can I warmly welcome you to Danegrove Primary School.

Danegrove is a mainstream Primary School that is committed to inclusive education and meeting the needs of all the children in its care.

We aim to provide a lively, creative curriculum to challenge and motivate our pupils and enable them to participate in a range of high quality learning opportunities. The Schools excellent facilities enable an excellent standard of education. We had a new year 2 unit built in 2013, and this has enhanced the opportunities that we can provide our children (although we are always seeking to make them even better). However, our greatest resource is our skilled and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to provide the best teaching and learning experience for each child.

We want our pupils to enjoy coming to school and to be enthusiastic about learning. We will nurture and encourage pupils and hopefully, inspire them to be active participants in their own development and education.

We encourage our pupils to be responsible and thoughtful and play an active part in all aspects of school life. Our School Council gives the children a voice where their thoughts and ideas can be expressed and put into practice. We want our children to feel safe and secure and have the confidence to achieve their full potential both academically and personally.

Our ethos is built on mutual respect for others, their values and belief. We hope to develop positive, active learners who are prepared for their role in a rich and diverse society.

At Danegrove we pride ourselves in our strong home/school relationships. We encourage an open door policy, allowing parents and staff to meet whenever a need arises. We hold a weekly Parent's surgery where parents and carers can meet a school leader to discuss any worries, concerns or queries. We place high value on establishing close links between home and the school so that we can effectively work together to achieve the best for your child.

We expect high standards of behaviour from all our pupils, and ask parents to enter into a Home-School Agreement with us, which sets out how the school and parents can work together.

We are passionately committed to individual achievement, personal growth and the pursuit of excellence for every child.

We hope Danegrove Primary School enjoys a long and successful working relationship with you and your child.
