Welcome and Vision
Welcome to Downsview Primary and Nursery School.
At Downsview we are committed to providing an excellent provision for children of all backgrounds, abilities and interests. The school provides a welcoming and caring environment in which children can thrive and enjoy school life within a stimulating and purposeful learning environment.
We dedicate ourselves to raising the achievement of every child and ensuring that all children are challenged to realise their individual talents. Children should enjoy coming to school, where they will encounter a range of opportunities and experiences that will encourage a continued life-long love of learning. We seek to ensure that the children develop intellectually, emotionally and socially. We encourage the children to develop effective learning behaviours, which they can apply to any situation. We promote good manners and positive behaviour and show the children that self-discipline and consideration for others and their surroundings are important qualities for life.
We are proud of the education we offer at Downsview. A committed staff and active Governing Board work together to deliver education of the highest quality, ensuring that the children receive a broad and balanced curriculum, which offers a range of experiences. We have an excellent pastoral care system and our children are encouraged to contribute their views on school life, ensuring all children have a voice.
We believe that it is crucial that a close and complementary relationship exists between home and school and we value our partnerships with parents/carers. We welcome you to our school so that you can see for yourself how we learn together. Please call the school office to arrange a time to visit, we will be delighted to share our school with you.
