Our Ethos

At Days Lane Primary School we provide a foundation for life in a happy, high achieving school, where all individuals have high expectations of themselves, respect each other and strive to excel. The school offers a wide range of learning experiences based on a progressive and exciting curriculum, which we continually evaluate and develop. 

We believe passionately in providing a blend of academic challenge, moral development and enrichment that allows for the holistic development of each child in our care and recognise the importance of every child as a unique individual, each with their own gifts and talents.

It is our aim to build a successful partnership with parents so that our learners are given every possible opportunity to flourish. We nurture good behaviour through building relationships with pupils and engaging them in exciting learning experiences.

We are a school to which the whole school community, children, staff, parents and governors are proud to belong and hope that the children of Days Lane, and their parents, will come to regard the years spent here to be enjoyable, valuable, purposeful and productive.

Our aims are to:

  • Promote a fully inclusive community where everyone feels happy, safe and secure.
  • Create an enquiry based curriculum that is engaging and purposeful for all children set in real life contexts.
  • To ensure excellence permeates every aspect of school life.
  • To develop resilient learners who take risks and learn from their mistakes.
