Welcome to North Denes Primary School – a place where the pupils, parents, staff and community come together as one school ‘family’. From ‘First Steps’ nursery through to the school elders in year 6, all children benefit from our long experience in providing what every child needs to succeed and enjoy school life.
A recent Ofsted Inspection (March 2014) rated us as ‘Good’ in every area. They wrote:
‘Very strong support is provided for pupils and their families and relationships with parents and carers are good. There is excellent liaison with parents and carers, schools and other agencies, and this is valued highly by the parents concerned… The behaviour of pupils, in lessons and around the school, is good and often excellent. Pupils learn well how to take responsibility for their own actions because they are encouraged to make the right choices… Consistently good and often outstanding teaching challenges pupils particularly well.’
