About Us

Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Deanwood Primary School, which became part of The Howard Academy Trust on 1st October 2016. Starting school is a most important time in your child's life and at Deanwood we aim to make it a great start. Being a smaller school helps us to create a happy, successful and safe environment in which to learn.

Our key aim is achievement with enjoyment and our children are encouraged to participate in all aspects of learning. We aim to develop caring, confident, responsible individuals who are given the opportunity to reach their full potential.

We very much hope that you enjoy taking a look at our school website. If you are interested in our school, we encourage you to come and visit. Please contact us via the information on our contact page.

About Us 

Deanwood is a community primary school serving the full primary age range from 4 to 11. We provide a high quality learning environment for all our children. The physical environment is important to every child’s learning and development. Our commitment is to provide a bright, well organised and stimulating place for children to learn. We have carpeted areas in classrooms and corridors, and the school provides the children with plenty of space, both indoors and outdoors. We encourage visitors to have a look around the school to see the children at work and play.

The school has a spacious ICT suite at its heart and all children enjoy access to this as part of the curriculum. 

A separate dining hall ensures that the main hall is available throughout the day for PE and drama activities.

We have a large field which is used for outdoor games and at lunchtimes in the summer. Children need space and the field is central to their outdoor experiences. KS1 and KS2 have their own playgrounds, with equipment available to provide a range of play activities.

As part of the Howard Academy Trust, we work with our partner schools to provide additional sports support with the option to utilise all their sporting facilities. To find out more about our Multi Academy Trust and our partner schools, please take a look at The Howard Academy Trust via the link at the top of the page.
