Our statement of purpose is:
“Enjoy and Achieve Together”
The achievement refers to attainment in academic, physical, social and emotional development, including children’s well-being. It is essential that school and home work together to develop all of these aspects of your child’s education.
School will provide high quality teaching and assessment, a broad and balanced curriculum and a stimulating, well resourced and well structured, caring and safe environment within which your children can thrive and achieve. We hope that you will support your children by ensuring that they complete their homework, go to bed at a reasonable time, have breakfast before they come to school and that you attend Parents’ Evenings and any other parent meetings when necessary and also support the social and fund raising events that our Friends of Dane Bank Association organise.
We believe that if children enjoy their education they will achieve more and so we will ensure that there is a wide range of enjoyable and interesting activities with which your children can engage.
Our Principles Are:
- Good communication makes our school community stronger.
- Being happy helps everyone succeed.
- Everyone is valued.
- A positive attitude leads to positive actions.
- Working together makes a change for the better.
“I am proud to be part of a team of staff who are committed and dedicated to encouraging the children to achieve their personal potential and encourage development of their individual talents.”
