Fundamental to everything we do, is the overarching aim to ensure that every member of our school community feels safe and secure, is happy, and able to thrive at Dane Royd. As leaders we are very proud of all that has been achieved in recent years and we believe that there are aspects of provision which are outstanding. The whole school ethos is one of raising aspiration for all. It is underpinned by a complete determination to ensure all children achieve their very best. Leaders expect the very best from all adults working in school. A drive for continual improvement is at the heart of our work, and, as leaders and governors, we continuously seek ways to enhance primary school life for the children in our care. We are ambitious for all, and determined to provide the very best, building on successful outcomes and ensuring high quality in every area. From the moment visitors enter school, this is noted and commented upon: ‘Beautiful learning environment, very warm and welcoming’. Parents are highly supportive of the school, reflected in the Parent Voice questionnaire Spring 2017 where almost all parents stated that they were happy with their child’s experience at Dane Royd. (97%) We are proud to lead Dane Royd and take delight in the achievements of our pupils across a wide and varied curriculum.
At Dane Royd, we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through class & school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE & British Values lessons and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
We teach PSHE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, Literacy, Maths and Science, as well as through outdoor educational visits, community work and activities.
