Aims, Values & Ethos

Deansfield Primary School is a values-based learning community, committed to the education of the whole child. We achieve high academic standards and believe these are best achieved in the context of a rich curriculum that is engaging, innovative and personalised to individual needs.

At Deansfield, our values underpin all that we do. We believe that positive, respectful and nurturing relationships are the context within which great learning occurs.

Children are challenged with high expectations and lessons that motivate and inspire; encouraging a culture where the reward is in the learning itself.

Deansfield is an inclusive school meeting the needs of a diverse range of learners. We recognise and nurture the strengths our community brings to the school, celebrating and valuing the rich cultural heritage of our families and the unique contributions of individuals from all experiences, cultures and backgrounds.
