About Us

Headteacher's Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Darell Primary and Nursery School.

We are an inclusive and supportive school and we place individuals at the heart of everything we set out to achieve.

We are ambitious for our children of all ages and of all abilities. Working in partnership with parents, carers and children, our hardworking and committed staff strive to help each pupil become the best they can be in both academic and creative subjects. Our particular strength is in helping our youngest children, in Nursery and in Reception, to master the first skills they need to succeed and participate in learning.  

Darell has a creative curriculum and music is an essential part of school life.  We bring the outside world in to our school to meet our children.  Inspirational authors, orchestras and dancers cross our threshold each year, whilst our wide-ranging extra-curricular activities enable pupils to learn languages, create art, play instruments and enjoy sport.

We work hard to create a safe environment in which our children feel able to challenge themselves and make mistakes, both of which are an important part of learning. Through our teaching of moral values, we provide the foundations for our children to develop into tolerant, committed and confident citizens.

Please explore our website. By viewing the pages and galleries displaying our activities, we hope you will have an insight into what we have to offer your children at Darell. What our website cannot show you, however, is our supportive and encouraging ethos and the sense of excitement our children have developed for learning.  If you would like to see this for yourself, please join one of our school tours by contacting the front office.

We look forward to meeting you and showing you what Darell has to offer your children.
