Welcome and thank you for your interest in Downsview Primary School. We know that choosing a school is a very important decision and we hope that this site will provide useful information to our parents, children, Governors and prospective parents.
Children are at the heart of all we do and we provide a caring and welcoming atmosphere where our children are motivated and excited by learning. We have a commitment to raising standards to ensure all our children realise their full potential and achieve the highest levels. We recognise and celebrate children’s achievements across all areas of school life, whether it be academic, sport, the arts, effort or community.
We are fortunate to have specialist teachers in spanish, music and P.E. and have a dedicated and talented staff team who are focussed on improving the quality of teaching and learning. Staff collaborate to share best practice to ensure the children have high quality provision. Children have opportunities to learn through a wide range of educational visits and events, including residential trips in Year 5 and 6. We continually review our curriculum to ensure learning is relevant to all our children which reflects our cultural diversity.
We have an experienced and supportive Governing Body who are committed to school improvement. We also have an active parent group, C.O.S.I. (Community Organisation for School Improvement) who are always busy fund-raising and organising fun events for the children.
We look forward to working alongside children, families, staff and Governors over this current academic year.
