About DPS


Downside Primary School is an established five form entry school, which opened in September 2011.  We are a big school, but we work hard to ensure that we create a welcoming, caring atmosphere – where all children are praised and developed as individuals.  Downside Primary School was judge to be a ‘good’ school in our most recent Ofsted inspection – January 2019

At Downside Primary School, we aim to:

      • develop an enthusiasm and love for learning
      • create a caring school where everyone’s voice is heard and valued
      • provide opportunities for everyone to learn and develop in a safe and challenging environment
      • offer an inspiring and exciting curriculum which provides knowledge and skills for life-long learning
      • promote positive attitudes and enable children to become caring and active citizens
      • value and respect diversity and enable children to develop the skills necessary to be positive role models in the community
      • sow and nurture an awareness of the need to care for the natural environment
      • encourage creativity and exploration in all areas of learning
      • enable children to discover for themselves and lay foundations for independent learning
      • actively promote an understanding and awareness of healthy living

Downside Primary School is a member of the West Area Partnership of Schools. Click HERE to find out more details.
