Welcome To North Denes Primary School

Welcome to North Denes Primary School. We are very proud of all we do at North Denes and strive to provide the best we can for every child in our care.

We believe strongly that a close working partnership with you as parents or carers is absolutely essential –it is of benefit to you, the school and the wider community that we serve and, most of all, to your child. When we all work together, children do best

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.’
