Welcome to Dane Bank Primary School


Being resilient means ‘sticking at it’ when things are really difficult!


Being responsible means ‘organising your own learning’!


Being resourceful means knowing ‘what to do’ and ‘where to go’ when you get stuck.


Being reflective means you can ‘learn from experience’.


Being ready means you are ‘enthusiastic and excited’ by your learning!

Following the recent announcement by the Prime Minister, you will probably have many questions and concerns.  Please be reassured that the School Leadership Team will be working hard to plan for the next steps. We await further information and guidance from Department for Education and Local Authority. We will continue to communicate with you via the usual channels to help you to make any changes to your current arrangements should you need to. 

In the short term, nothing has changed.

It goes without saying that the safety and well-being of your children, the staff and whole school community will be paramount in any plans that we make.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this uncertain time. (12.05.20)

Guidance from the Government and Public Health England is being updated constantly. We have been busy organising how to minimise the risk of spreading any potential infection for children who require a place at school over the coming weeks.

Please note it is important that:

Only children who absolutely need to be at school are. The best place for your child is at home.

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.
