Welcome to our school's website

Welcome to Downshall Primary School. I hope you will find that this website gives you some useful information about the school.

At Downshall School we work together to create a learning community that aims to maximise the potential of every pupil. We know that if we support each other and enrich the life of the pupils, parents and staff our chances of being successful in our aims are greatly enhanced.  

We celebrate the many traditions, backgrounds and cultures of our school, cherish our differences but unite together to remove any barriers to our learning opportunities.Our pupils’ success is achieved through a strong partnership of parents, school and their own motivation. All three of the partners have a clear and different role to play but working together is the best way to achieve our common aims.

 We hope that both parents and children enjoy the years spent at Downshall and will have happy memories of the time spent here.                                                      

                                                                                  Mr Ian Bennett
