At Davyhulme Primary School we believe in helping every child achieve their very best in everything they do. We continue to try and do our best to justify the 2010 Ofsted inspection which rated our school as “OUTSTANDING” , that is why I have been absolutely delighted by our most recent Ofsted inspection in June 2013 when yet again we were judged as ” OUTSTANDING “. This report is a great testament to everyone involved in our school community – our governors , our teaching staff , support staff , parents and of course our wonderful children.
We also truly believe that each child’s development is not just confined to the narrow curriculum of English , Maths and Science. Throughout this website there are tremendous examples of our commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum – which has been recognised by national award bearing organisations, such as Sport England , The Arts Council , Healthy Schools and Eco Schools.Every member of staff is involved in providing an extracurricular club for our children either at lunchtime or after school . Further opportunities are provided by working in partnership with a number of other local sports and clubs from a whole variety of different backgrounds.
Children are given opportunities to develop as people by going on stage , with every year group preparing a performance on our purpose built stage. They can also contribute to the life of the school by becoming an Eco councillor or school councillor or playground leader. Life skills and personal confidence continue to grow when children attend our residential trips to Grasmere in the Lake District or Dobroyd Castle ( for the Robinwood experience ) in Todmorden.
We have fantastic school grounds which we strive to include in as many aspects of our curriculum as possible, trying to strike a balance between the digital world and the natural world. Follow us on Twitter and our ever evolving Blogs . We have also installed four large TVs to ‘showcase’ much of the good work produced by our children.
If your child attends our school, then you will already be aware of what a great school we have. It is our intention that this site should be a working site that helps parents, children and teachers reduce paper work but increase communication.
If you are thinking about sending your child to our school then I hope that what you have seen will have stirred enough interest for you to take the next step and arrange to see our school first hand.
In any case, I hope you enjoy your visit to our site and that you come back again soon!
