Welcome To North Denes Primary School

Welcome to North Denes Primary School! Our school is a place where pupils, parents, staff and community come together as one school ‘family’. From nursery through to year 6, all children benefit from our long experience in providing what every child needs to succeed and enjoy school life.

We ‘go the extra mile’ to ensure that our children achieve as well as they possibly can; are happy and safe and become well-rounded caring citizens. Our last Ofsted inspection (July 2018) rated the school as ‘Outstanding’ for Leadership and ‘Good’ in all other areas. The report states:

‘The school provides a safe, nurturing and aspirational environment that supports pupils very well. Pupils’ well-being is at the heart of all that leaders and teachers do. As a result, pupils are given excellent support to be successful learners….Every pupil’s success is at the heart of all that the school does. Senior leaders have high expectations of learning and achievement, and provide exceptional care and welfare for pupils and their families….Teachers are explicitly teaching the skills needed to achieve the highest standards. Rising numbers of pupils are achieving greater depth at the end of key stage 2. High quality work was clearly evident in pupils’ exercise books.’

We are proud of our school and welcome all who join us!
