Shaping the Future

Welcome to Downfield Primary and Nursery School. The years spent in primary school are among the most important in every child’s education and we realise the important decision you are having to make in choosing the right school for your child.

At Downfield we aim to provide a happy, caring, secure and stimulating environment in which the children will feel confident to learn about themselves and the world about them. Each child receives a broad and balanced curriculum through a combination of topic work and subject based teaching.

We use the National and International Primary Curriculum which incorporates English, maths, science, art, geography, history, ICT, design technology, music, PE, RE, PSHCE. At Downfield, we also teach Spanish as our modern foreign language.

We aim to make the children’s education both interesting and relevant to their lives, maintaining high standards of achievement and catering for all our children’s individual needs.

As parents you will always be welcome in school because we believe that the best education for your child is achieved by partnerships between parents and teachers. I hope you will be able to visit the school with your child so that you can see for yourselves the excellent opportunities we provide.
