Welcome to Danemill Primary
My name is Mrs Hackett and I warmly welcome you to the Enderby Danemill Primary School’s website. It is with great pride that I write to you as the new Headteacher of Enderby Danemill. I hope you find all the information you are looking for; this is the place where you can gain an insight into all the things that happen at our wonderful school.
Our school motto is ‘Only the best is good enough’ and this is apparent with everything that we do. I am honoured to take on the lead of such a fantastic school where we are determined to support both children and staff as well as our local community in fulfilling their individual goals.
We are a school committed to celebrating our community and enjoy strong, collaborative partnerships. We learn about the history of our school and work to create our own memories. The village of Enderby was originally a Danish Settlement, hence the name of the school, Danemill Primary. The school was originally built in 1965 as a junior school, the local infant school was based on Townsend Road and in 2013 the two schools merged onto one site.
At Danemill, we believe that a happy child is a child who will enjoy learning in a positive, inclusive and fun environment. Our aim is to ensure that each and every child fulfils their potential and is ready for the next stage in their education. Our key learning values which are woven through are curriculum, are curiosity, communication, reflection, resilience, motivation, creativity, collaboration and bravery.
Danemill is proud to be a part of Discovery Schools Multi Academy Trust. The Trust consists of fifteen schools who work closely in partnership together for the benefit of all of our children.
We have high aspirations for all of our children and have developed a curriculum that supports the needs of our children. It is rich and inspiring as well as offering a broad range of experiences and opportunities. The core subjects of Maths, English, Science and P.E. are taught discreetly alongside PSHE and Computing whilst the foundation subjects are taught through a topic-based approach. In order to engage and enthuse our pupils’ tangible links are made across all areas of the curriculum. Pupil and staff wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do, we aim to educate the whole child in order to enable them to be the best that they can be.
Working in partnership with parents is crucial if we are to ensure all of our children feel safe, happy, valued and achieve their full potential. I look forward to meeting you all in the near future, at school events, assemblies, social occasions or even a quick chat on the playground!
Danemill wants to provide an outstanding education with unforgettable memories for children within our Danemill family. If you would like to see the school in action then we would welcome the opportunity to show you around and answer any questions that you may have. Meanwhile, enjoy our website and social media channels which showcases just some of the fabulous learning taking place.
