Headteacher's Welcome Message

Welcome

Welcome to Danemill Primary School. We hope that you find this website useful and that you get an insight into life at our school. The village of Enderby was originally a Danish Settlement, hence the name of the school, Danemill Primary. The school was originally built in 1965 as a junior school, the local infant school was based on Townsend Road and in 2013 the two schools merged onto one site.

At Danemill we believe that a happy child is a child who will enjoy learning in a positive, inclusive and fun environment. Our aim is to ensure that each and every child fulfils their potential and is ready for the next stage in their education.

Danemill is part of Discovery Schools Multi Academy Trust. The Trust consists of fourteen schools who work closely in partnership together for the benefit of all of our children. We also enjoy working in partnership with the Affinity Teaching School Alliance and Brockington College the local secondary school.

The curriculum at Danemill is rich and inspiring; we offer a broad range of experiences and opportunities. The core subjects of Maths, English, Science and P.E. are taught discreetly, whilst the foundation subjects are taught through a topic based approach. In order to engage and enthuse our pupils’ tangible links are made across all areas of the curriculum. Pupil wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do, we aim to educate the whole child in order to enable them to be the best that they can be.

Danemill is a National Support School; we have Specialist Leaders in Education (SLEs) who support other schools across Leicestershire for Computing, Maths, Behaviour and Emotional Literacy Support.

We educate children from 3 to 11 years old as well as offering wrap around care before and after school.

The senior leaders at Danemill hope you find this website useful and informative.
