Welcome to your new school! We are very happy that you will be joining Danesfield School, and we look forward to meeting you, whether you are starting school for the first time or joining mid term.
At Danesfield we welcome pupils arriving at any stage of their primary education journey, and we have many different strategies in place to ensure that the transition into or between schools is as smooth and positive as possible. We hope you will find the majority of the information you need in our Welcome Pack below.
If you have previously attended another school, we operate a ‘Passport Scheme’, which enables the class teachers to ensure new pupils settle in as quickly as possible.
The ‘Our School’ section of our website contains additional information you may find useful: Equipment lists, School Uniform information, School Calendar and Class Timetables, Forms and useful information about day-to-day school life.
We hope that you enjoy your time at Danesfield School. If you have any questions, please contact the school office where the staff are always more than happy to assist.
If you are a Service family, then you may wish to contact Debbie Brettle, the Service Children Support Coordinator (SCSCo) at Danesfield School.
The purpose of her role as Service Children Support Coordinator is to support the needs of Service children in the school environment. Working alongside the current policies and procedures in place at the school, Debbie can offer additional support for Service children and families at times that can present challenges such as:
- During times of transition in and out of educational settings, both within the UK and overseas
- During times of parental deployment
- As school friends are posted away
- At other times of wider need
Debbie Brettle can be contacted via the school office.
