Head’s Welcome

Mrs Sandra Fuller

Headteacher

Welcome to Downe Primary School.

 We are a small school with a caring family atmosphere. We have high expectations which we work hard together to achieve. Everyone in our school and community is important to us.

It is our aim to achieve the highest possible attainment and to develop the full potential of every child in all areas – Spiritual, Moral, Cultural, Mental and Physical.

We provide consistently good teaching which is both stimulating and challenging; this motivates our children to be engaged, excited and successful learners.

We provide a broad curriculum and many extra curriculum events and activities.

We value our partnership with parents and other members of the community.

We hope that you will enjoy browsing our website and that it will give you a flavour of all that goes on at our school.

 Sandra Fuller,

Headteacher.

In achieving high standards we expect pupils
