We value and need the support of parents and other family members or friends in our classrooms. Many activities such as swimming or trips would be impossible without your help.
Pupils also gain a great deal by sharing their learning with you - whether that is reading a book or putting on a dramatic or musical performance.
Children feel more motivated to learn when they know you value the effort they put in and the success they achieve. At Damers School we prize highly your involvement.
You are welcome to speak informally with your child's teacher most afternoons except Wednesday when we have a regular whole staff meeting. In addition regular parent consultation sessions are provided throughout the year
Damers is a welcoming, caring place where stimulating and creative learning takes place.
Our children are encouraged to:
Do their best, persevere, respond to challenge, enjoy the gift of learning and value their work;
Take responsibility, be proud of their good behaviour and support each other.
We aim to:
Provide a range of opportunities, drawing on our unique strengths, to enrich children’s learning and lives;
Accept and value individual differences, developing spiritual and moral awareness;
Work in partnership with children, parents, carers, staff and teachers alongside the wider community.
Damers School Governors
School governors are members of a team of volunteers that support the school's development. The governing body has an important job to do in looking at the overall direction in which the school is going in order to help make it as good as it can be. It is an excellent way of helping children to achieve the best education they can. We have a committed, keen and supportive, yet challenging governing body chaired by Mr Robert Potter.
The governing body is made up of members of the community, including parents, staff and teachers. If you would like to know more then contact the school. The minutes of the meetings are available in the school office for anyone to read.
