Welcome to Denaby Main Primary Academy

Welcome to Denaby Main Primary Academy. We are delighted you have taken the time to read all about our school. We are a small, friendly community school that takes pride in who we are and where we want to be. Our #denabycan motto is our whole school approach to encourage all that together, we can all achieve. We have friendly hard-working children and dedicated staff who along with our wider community, ensure that every child is happy and has the opportunity to achieve their full potential and thrive. Our staff know our children very well and we pride ourselves on the family ethos of our school and work in partnership with parents.

Through a wide and varied curriculum and focussed intervention, we have many layers of support to nurture all to achieve their very best. We offer a bespoke approach to meet the needs of all our learners, pulling on the expertise of our staff and with outside organisations and partnerships to ensure we provide the best education and support. We are committed to a fully inclusive Primary experience, where educating the whole child extends beyond the norm. Our three curriculum drivers include Academic Excellence, Character Curriculum and Aspirations and we are committed to providing experiences that inspire beyond measure for our learners and families. Opportunity, Positivity and a can-do attitude is what we are all about!

Our Astrea Principles of Resilience, Empathy, Aspiration, Contribution and Happiness are golden threads, which exist in all our learning experiences and these are also explicitly taught in our Tribe Time Sessions. We believe having time to reflect as a learner and school citizen, to know how to look after our emotional and mental health are strong foundations for good learning.

If you would like to know more about our school and our #denabycan approach we would be more than happy to discuss our school aspirations further and show you our wonderful school. Our umbrellas of support from high quality teaching and learning, therapeutic interventions, Family Hub and our small family ethos show that come rain or shine, whatever the weather, we are here. Come stand under our umbrella!

Give us a call, we’d love to meet you,

Mrs L Dickinson, Principal
