Welcome to Derwent Primary School

 

 

“What a warm, friendly school with delightful children.”

-Parent

I warmly invite you to use our website as a window through which to view our school.

At Derwent Primary School we have created a friendly, caring and supportive environment that encourages our children to fully learn, develop and share a love of learning.  This ethos creates a happy and safe school where all our children are able to make a flying start towards reaching their potential.  We are also a values led school where all members of the community are respected.  Each month we focus on a different value and celebrate when children demonstrate it, whether inside or outside school.

We are fortunate to be based within extensive grounds with two large playgrounds, outside learning areas for: Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2, a pond area and an internal courtyard (which is now our values garden). Our talented staff use their expertise to extend the opportunities of our pupils both inside and outside the classroom.

Our strong, committed governing body fully supports the school in providing the best possible educational opportunities for all.

We have strong links with the Redborne Sports Partnership and Central Bedfordshire Inspiring Music Service, which helps us to provide an extended and rich educational experience for our pupils.

Please enjoy finding out about our school on our website. If you would like to arrange a visit we would be delighted to arrange this for you by contacting the School Office. Alternatively, please see a link to our internal virtual tour here https://tours.e4education.co.uk/derwent_lower_school/.
