The Staff and Governors at Denby Free School undertake a 

commitment to the pupils and parents to offer equal access to a wide, balanced education within a secure and safe environment, based on a Christian foundation.


Denby Free School is a Church Aided School.  This means that the Church of England has a financial, as well as pastoral, interest in the school.  We have close links with the Church and the Community and try to create a Christian atmosphere in the school at all times.  We meet together daily to offer worship and thanks to God.  We actively encourage the children to love and care for each other in a positive and supportive way.

We aim to create a happy, secure, stimulating and purposeful environment in which every pupil enjoys their academic, social and creative development.

We place great emphasis upon the promotion of the basic skills required fie language development mathematics, scientific and artistic observation and encourage the many ways of self expression and recording information.

We give careful attention to developing social awareness, positive attitudes, self respect and respect for others and their beliefs and property.

In addition to achieving academic and creative success every pupil is encouraged to be self-motivated, reliable and able to use their own initiative to make decisions.

A half-termly Achievement Assembly and school Award System recognises individual achievements in and out of school to ensure children develop a good self-image.



The curriculum is determined by the 1988 Education Reform Act. Emphasis is placed on the core curriculum of English. Mathematics and Science. The foundation subjects are – IT, Technology, Art, Geography, History, Music, PE and Games. Religious Education is a statutory subject, which is taught as a separate subject. Our programme also includes Health, Personal and social Education to help children understand more about themselves. These subjects will not be found as individual items, but are incorporated in the topic work. Topics are carefully balanced during the year and are planned across the curriculum.

A range of teaching methods is used, individual tuition, group work and class teaching.

Special Needs: Every child is considered to have special individual teaching needs and each class teacher aims to meet these needs. A few children will have Special Educational Needs, which are met within the normal classroom setting wherever possible, by providing differentiation between work and activities set for the less able and more able children. If found to be appropriate the children are helped by short daily sessions where their progress is closely monitored and by involving external expertise is required. Parents are involved at all stages of their child’s education.
