On behalf of all the children, staff and Governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Downton CE Primary School. I hope you enjoy reading about our exciting, vibrant, creative and enthusiastic learning community. We are situated in the heart of a lovely village and, as a school, we very much enjoy being part of a busy community and have close links with both St Laurence’s Church and the Baptist Church.
As you will see by the class blogs there are many interesting and exciting events happening in school every day and all the children thrive in this well-focussed, high quality learning environment. Children enjoy a curriculum that is broad, exciting, engaging and embraces a diversity of interests. Through a balance of challenge and support they learn to persevere in all that they do. We aim to prepare our children for a lifelong learning journey and their future in a complex world. Read more...
