Head Teachers’ Welcome.
We are delighted to welcome you to our website. We hope it gives you an insight into life at our school and what it is like being a part of the Danson Family.
Danson is a popular three form entry school with a nursery, breakfast and after school club provision. We are nestled beside Danson Park, and we are incredibly lucky to have extensive grounds for our children.
At Danson we work together with our staff, parents and carers, young learners, governors and community members to create a happy school community which aims to be responsive to the needs of our individual learners. We do this by providing a safe, caring and friendly atmosphere where quality and excellence in all things is encouraged and acknowledged.
We have an enthusiastic, experienced and committed staff, who strive to support our children ‘to be the very best that they can be’. Our teaching staff deliver exciting approaches to teaching and learning. They ensure our children have a broad and balanced range of opportunities by which to foster the development of positive, responsible attitudes towards learning alongside the development of personal and social skills. At Danson there is an expectation of high academic achievement, we encourage creativity and cater to a personalised approach to learning.
Our broad and balanced curriculum has been designed to give our children opportunities to develop as independent, resilient and aspirational learners. We have high expectations of our children and our high standards of behaviour and work reflect this.
We strongly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. Our parents are supportive to the School’s ethos and aims, alongside valuing the aspirations we have for our children. Each year we continue to reflect on how we can provide more opportunities for parents to become involved in supporting their children as learners or to become learners themselves.
I have been proud to be part of the Danson Team from 2012 and Head Teacher from 2015 and was delighted to welcome Mrs Allen as Co-Head in 2022. It is a privilege to work alongside our staff who bring joy and enthusiasm to our children’s learning and have a commitment and belief that all our children can be nurtured, believed in, inspired and achieve.
