Welcome to Darley Dale Primary School.
A very warm welcome to Darley Dale Primary School! We hope the information on this website will give you an idea of our school; its values, beliefs and vision and what we think makes it a very special place! The government school inspectorate OFSTED agreed with us when we were judged to be an ‘outstanding’ school in our inspection in December 2013.
Darley Dale Primary School is a caring, vibrant and forward thinking school with great pupils, parents and staff who all work closely together to make this happen.
We have a very strong partnership with our parents and are committed to working with them to give our children an exciting, meaningful, happy and successful time with us. Throughout the following pages we refer to many aspects of the school. It is however impossible to put into print or capture on photograph the most important ingredient of atmosphere, ethos and the warmth and welcome of children and staff. The best way to experience this is to come and see us in normal school time. Our doors are always open so please come and talk with us if you want to know anything else! We can promise you a very warm welcome. If you are considering sending your child to our school, then please contact us to arrange a visit!
