Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome from the Headteacher


Welcome to Downe Primary School. At Downe Primary School we believe that all children are unique individuals with a right to a safe and happy learning experience. We are driven by our belief that children are most likely to be happy and therefore successful if they are given care, support and challenge in equal measure. Our team is united and dedicated in pursuing the very best for every child at Downe Primary School. By ‘the best’ we mean children who are positive and enthusiastic and ready for the challenges of life as well as being academically successful.

We aim to provide children with a well-rounded and ambitious curriculum. High academic standards and expectations run alongside creativity, inspiration and imagination. Through the school’s core values of Relationships, Reflection, Respect, Recognition, Responsibility and Resilience; children learn to: challenge themselves; demonstrate excellence; try their hardest, care for themselves and their community and enjoy their education. Our curriculum draws upon the natural and historical resources in our community and the children’s experiences, to make it relevant and inspiring for them.

If you are a visitor and want to know more about our wonderful little school, please get in touch by email or telephone to ask us any questions you may have or to make an appointment to meet us in person and allow us to show you round.
