Congratulations children awarded this week's Celebration Assembly certificate . We are all so proud of you!

Headteacher's Welcome

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.
