Congratulations children awarded this week's Celebration Assembly certificate . We are all so proud of you!
On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to the Downton C of E Primary School website. I hope you enjoy reading about our caring learning community, situated at the heart of one of Wiltshire's loveliest villages. With close links with both St Laurence’s Church and the Baptist Church, our Christian ethos underpins the warm atmosphere that is clearly evident to all who visit.
Our school is a wonderfully nurturing environment, where children flourish and grow to become independent, resilient and responsible young people, excited about life and learning. As a village school we pride ourselves on our ability to know each pupil as an individual and deliver a well-planned, varied curriculum which inspires and challenges.
Through a balance of challenge and support our children learn to persevere in all that they do. They are encouraged to ask questions, think creatively to solve problems, collaborate with peers and develop skills that will lay the foundations for their future success.
As soon as you arrive at the school you will be aware of its warm family atmosphere and purposeful learning environment. Please don’t take my word for it, there is a wealth of information on this website and more importantly do come and see us for yourselves, our contact details are at the top of this page.

We are taking part in a world record attempt to create the longest amount of bunting. This is to raise awareness of mental health issues and to celebrate 70 years of the NHS. Each child in our school is designing an individual flag and some of our lovely parents will be assembling them into a string of bunting which will join with others across Wiltshire and Hampshire. Thank you so much to all the parent volunteers who have helped with this project!
