Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is of the highest quality and underpins a rich and exciting curriculum which captures pupils’ interest and motivates them to learn. Ofsted March 2014

In (January) 2017, Denholme Primary School was granted academy status. We have worked with St Edmund's Nursery School, Lapage Primary School,Parkwood Primary School & Victoria Primary School to build a multi-academy trust.
All the Trust's schools share the same values:

  • The learner is at the heart of all we do
  • The trust will follow a moral approach, based on inclusive educational values
  • An emphasis on the importance of transitions between education settings and the creation of a seamless learning journey
  • A commitment to partnership with families and the wider community
  • The value of creativity in the curriculum
  • A focus on high expectations, achievement  and excellent progress for all, valuing the development of broader skills and attributes which are less easy to measure
  • Support for all who work at our schools, linked to professional development opportunities
The Trust sits alongside the Teaching School and School Centre for Initial Teacher Training at St Edmund's Nursery School.

Currently all 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to up to 15 hours of free childcare over 38 weeks.  From September working parents who meet the criteria could be entitled to an extra 15 hours of free childcare.  We will be offering this at Denholme Primary School and hope to be able to offer at least ten 30 hour places.  To see if you are eligible for the additional 15 hours of free childcare, please go to https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/.

In addition, we would also like to offer more flexibility for parents of children who are only accessing the 15 hours entitlement by allowing them to choose the sessions their children will attend (subject to availability).

Further details are available from the school office.
