Mrs Mason

I highly recommend watching this short film put together by the UK Safer Internet Centre. A brilliant one and a half minutes highlighting why the day is important, and how awareness of internet dangers is vital to the lives of your pupils. To take a look please follow the link below:

Community Hub

Firstly, thank you all very much for supporting our community hub by coming to get your food and hygiene items. We are wanting to develop the area further and make it into a safe, warm useable space. Some of the ideas we have for Denaby Main Primary Community Hub is for it to be a multi-purpose space that is accessible to the wider community that we serve. To provide the opportunity for parents, carers and family members of our children to access support beyond education and curriculum delivery.

Miss Davies (Safeguarding Lead and Families officer) through working with our families identified target areas that will engage and support the community. These include:

·          Personal Support – clothes stop, food, meal support, hygiene products, sanitary products, cleaning products, nappies and baby food. We are also wanting to invite services in order to be able to signpost struggling families to local support and professional services, we could like to hold fund raising events and coffee mornings.  If you have any ideas that you would like to put forward, please let Miss Davies know.

        Thank you again for your continued support 

Draft homework policy

We discussed our draft homework policy with the school. Our next steps is to take feedback from parents, pupils and teachers. More information soon.

We have decided to encourage more children to get onto our Reading Challenge board by awarding stickers for those that read at least 3 days per week. Please help your child by signing their reading diary- thank you.


Our new French phrases

Je voudrais manger un croissant s’il vous plait

(Please can  I have a croissant)


Information for all parents but particularly Year 3 parents.
We have picked up that children are communicating with strangers on games such as Roblox and some are also playing games which are unsuitable for their age. This can potentially put children at risk.
Maintaining good attendance at school- parents’ guide.

Children’s University

We will be awarding hours to children who volunteer in school for example as a Playground Leader, Eco or School Councillor.


  • Children receive a BRONZE certificate when children have collected 30 hours in their Passport to Learning.
  • The next one will be a SILVER certificate for 65 hours.
  • Then a GOLD certificate for 100 hours.
  • Thereafter, children will then get certificates at every stage of 3065 and 100 hours after that, all the way up to 1,000 hours!
  • Children only need to collect 30 hours in their passport to be invited to our Children’s University Graduation!
  • Children will be invited to the annual CU graduation ceremony held at Doncaster College & University Centre.
  • Children wear a mortar board cap and gown and are presented with a special graduation certificate.
  • Families, friends and teachers are invited, with talks from guest speakers and performances where possible


 Remember if children read at least 3 times in the week (proposed 3 x to encourage more children )and have their reading diary signed they can earn stickers on their chart. These stickers earn the children a prize for each milestone they hit. We will also feature their photo in the school hall and in this news post. So please support your child to read as much as possible. Thank you.
