School life at Deanshanger has looked quite different for the last few weeks but, following the governments' confirmation on 28th May, we will be welcoming back many children in FS, Y1 and Y6 from Monday 1st June. We have been open to a group of children throughout the lock down and this group will also be in, but even bigger from 1st June and split into three teaching groups.
Whether your child needs to stay at home, you have chosen for them to stay at home or your child will be coming in to school, we will continue to do everything possible to support them and you at this extremely challenging time.
Our full risk assessment for this time has been written and reviewed by all stakeholders. It will be under continued review as we move forward.
Please also find supporting materials - Behaviour Policy COVID-19 Addendum, reviewed Safeguarding information, advice from the LA regarding 'Supporting vulnerable children' and a document that we will be referring to in school - 'Coronavirus questions: Where to go for answers at DPS'.
We are an aspiring large village school, keen to reflect upon all aspects of school life to support a breadth of school improvement. Our aim for pupils is simple – to ensure that they achieve and exceed their potential and have a lot of fun along the way. We strive to ensure that every day is filled with happiness, laughter, support, encouragement, and progress.
Our pupils have a strong voice in the school - something that we are very proud of. Their latest 'School Charter' is on the 'Pupils as Leaders' page of the website. Please have a read as it will give you a real feeling of the type of school we are and what we believe in.
We provide a rich diet of broad and authentic experiences to bring learning to life and to deliver the very best opportunities and experiences for our children, all 374 of them, both individually and collectively. In line with government guidelines, we are strong advocates of a broad and balanced curriculum in every year group. We encourage our children to exercise their 'can do' attitude each day in all subjects, to ensure that they constantly reach for the stars. With amazing children, dedicated and compassionate staff and governors, a very proactive PTA, a very strong community and strong links with other schools, we are well placed for ongoing improvement and fun learning opportunities.
