Welcome to Dane Bank Primary School


We respect ourselves, one another and our environment.

We show respect through the way we behave and the way we treat others.

We respect everybody in our school – no matter who they are.


We take responsibility for ourselves, one another and our learning.

We understand that we have a responsibility to our friends in school and are aware that the way we behave, affects them.

We own up to mistakes and admit when we get things wrong.



We embrace challenge and recognise that through our mistakes, true learning happens.

We take risks, are always willing to have a go…..never wanting to miss out on opportunities to improve.

We encourage others to be resilience and cheer each other on.

We don’t give up! We are #teamDB


We show kindness to all that we meet, in the way that we treat people, in our class, school locally and globally.

Treating people with kindness allows them to feel welcome and comfortable in our school.

Kindness often starts with a smile.


We treat others fairly and listen to what people have to say.

We act with integrity – being open, honest and fair to others.

We treat people equally and without discrimination – we give everybody a fair chance.


We show empathy to others and try to consider how they feel. 

We try hard to learn about others and the world we live in so that we can understand people that may be different to us.

We consider how our actions affect others and the world we live in.

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.”

World Book Day 2022

World Book Day 2022

The children recently enjoyed coming to school in their pyjamas and different outfits for world book day. The children read Mr Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley and even made some pancakes to eat in their very own book café!
