Dear Parent,

                  Choosing the right school for your child is vitally important. All parents want the best for their children in terms of their standards of educational achievement, their social and personal development and in terms of their child feeling happy, safe and secure in a fun learning environment. At Deighton Primary School we believe we can offer you all of these things as well as making your child feel part of a passionate, proud community. Many visitors comment on the unique, friendly atmosphere within our school and we are always complimented about the respectful, polite behaviour our pupils display both on and off site. Our recent Mission Statement saw many members of our school community forge the phrase,

“Believe, Achieve, aim for Excellence.”

                I feel that this encapsulates our school’s current approach and values.

                We pride ourselves on the rigorous standards set in the classroom by our dedicated, professional staff and feel that the broad curriculum and fun learning experiences we provide, will see your child flourish in our care.

                We are a school that values each of our children’s unique abilities and we endeavour to help them reach their full potential in a nurturing setting. We understand how precious a child’s formative educational experiences are and we try to move them forward every day at a level that is commensurate with their ability, whilst making them a functioning member of a wider community. We also try to never lose sight of the fact that learning should be a joyous experience for the children at this stage of their development. We also understand how important you are and place a great emphasis upon parental co-operation and support within our school.

               Should you choose to send your child to Deighton Primary School, I am sure that they will enjoy a rewarding, challenging, fulfilling, happy education. Our recent Estyn report of June 2015 highlights many of the good things that are going on at our school:


               I look forward to meeting you soon. If you have any queries or concerns in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

M. Gough
